What is an eigenvalue equation? Chapter 1.1 14 Jan "Is the Moon really there when nobody looks?" Chapter 1.2 2 17 Jan Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday 19 Jan Since quantum mechanics relies on probabilities, how do we quantify uncertainty? Chapter 1.3 21 Jan Normalization: What is the probability that a particle has to be somewhere ? Chapter 1.4 3 24 Jan If we make momentum an operator ,will it agree with classical physics? Chapter 1.5 HW #1 due 26 Jan Why do particles act like waves, and what then is their wavelength? Chapter 1.6 28 Jan If particles were NOT waves, would there be an Uncertainty Principle? Chapter 1.6 4 31 Jan If all the eigenfunctions are stationary states, how can QM handle time dependent dynamics? Chapter 2.1 HW #2 due 2 Feb How do the boundary condition alone give quantized energy levels? Chapter 2.2
