# 8.05 Quantum Physics II

Together 8.05 and 8.06 cover quantum physics with applications drawn from modern physics. General formalism of quantum mechanics: states, operators, Dirac notation, representations, measurement theory. Harmonic oscillator: operator algebra, states. Quantum mechanics in three dimensions: central potentials and the radial equation, bound and scattering states, qualitative analysis of wavefunctions. Angular momentum: operators, commutator algebra, eigenvalues and eigenstates, spherical harmonics. Spin: Stern-Gerlach devices and measurements, nuclear magnetic resonance, spin and statistics. Addition of angular momentum: Clebsch-Gordan series and coefficients, spin systems, and allotropic forms of hydrogen.

This class has 8.04 as a prerequisite.

8.05 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by A. Adams.

Lecture occurs 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 6-120.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Quantum Physics II site or on the 8.05 Stellar site.
