Unformatted text preview: below. This provides a thorough introduction to the foundations of quantum mechanics: wave functions, the time-dependent Schrödinger equation, one-dimensional potentials, the harmonic oscillator, Hilbert-space formalism, 3-dimensional potentials, the hydrogen atom, angular momentum, spin, atoms & the periodic table, etc. Entangled states will be noted, plus the statistical interpretation of quantum mechanics, and the conflicts between realist, orthodox, and agnostic positions with regard to the nature of physical “reality.”...
