8.06 Quantum Physics III

Class Info

Continuation of 8.05. Units: natural units, scales of microscopic phenomena, applications. Time-independent approximation methods: degenerate and nondegenerate perturbation theory, variational method, Born-Oppenheimer approximation, applications to atomic and molecular systems. The structure of one- and two-electron atoms: overview, spin-orbit and relativistic corrections, fine structure, variational approximation, screening, Zeeman and Stark effects. Charged particles in a magnetic field: Landau levels and integer quantum hall effect. Scattering: general principles, partial waves, review of one-dimension, low-energy approximations, resonance, Born approximation. Time-dependent perturbation theory. Students research and write a paper on a topic related to the content of 8.05 and 8.06.

This class has 8.05 as a prerequisite.

8.06 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by B. Zwiebach.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 6-120.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.
