5.70 Statistical Thermodynamics

Class Info

Develops classical equilibrium statistical mechanical concepts for application to chemical physics problems. Basic concepts of ensemble theory formulated on the basis of thermodynamic fluctuations. Examples of applications include Ising models, lattice models of binding, ionic and non-ionic solutions, liquid theory, polymer and protein conformations, phase transition, and pattern formation. Introduces computational techniques with examples of liquid and polymer simulations.

This class has 5.60 as a prerequisite.

5.70 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by J. Cao and A. Willard.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-257.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

5.73 Introductory Quantum Mechanics I

Class Info

Presents the fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics: wave properties, uncertainty principles, Schrodinger equation, and operator and matrix methods. Includes applications to one-dimensional potentials (harmonic oscillator), three-dimensional centrosymetric potentials (hydrogen atom), and angular momentum and spin. Approximation methods include WKB, variational principle, and perturbation theory.

This class has 5.61, 8.03, and 18.03 as prerequisites.

5.73 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by R. Field.

Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 8-205.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
