Quantum Physics 357: Course Outline 1. The book that I’m going to use for most part of the course will be A Modern Approach to Quantum Mechanics John S. Townsend (University Science Books) It will be available at the McGill Bookstore, 3420 McTavish Street, Tel.: 514-398-7444. 2. Time and Venue 10:30 am to 11:25 am in the Stewart Biology Building S3/3; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 3. The course generally assumes that you are familiar with basics of integrations, di±er- entiations, and classical mechanics. In this course I plan to cover the following topics: The original Stern-Gerlach experiments and the beginning of quantum mechanics. Matrix mechanics: Operators, Eigenstates, Eigenvalues, Group Theory, Representation Theory (in some details). Angular Momentum: Angular Momenta Operators, Addition of Angular Momenta, Spin Angular Momentum, Representation, Possible Higher Spin Extensions. Hamiltonian Formulation: Time evolution Operator, Uncertainty Relations, Magnetic Resonance. Spin– 1 2 Particles: Two or More Spin– 1 2 particles, Hyper²ne Splitting, EPR Paradox, Bell Inequalities. Schrodinger Formulation: Wave Mechanics, Momentum States, Wave Packets, Group
