8.322 Quantum Theory II


Class Info

A two-term subject on quantum theory, stressing principles: uncertainty relation, observables, eigenstates, eigenvalues, probabilities of the results of measurement, transformation theory, equations of motion, and constants of motion. Symmetry in quantum mechanics, representations of symmetry groups. Variational and perturbation approximations. Systems of identical particles and applications. Time-dependent perturbation theory. Scattering theory: phase shifts, Born approximation. The quantum theory of radiation. Second quantization and many-body theory. Relativistic quantum mechanics of one electron.

This class has 8.07, and 8.321 as prerequisites.

8.322 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by S. Todadri.

Lecture occurs 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 8-205.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
