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, differ- 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, Hyperfine Splitting, EPR Paradox, Bell Inequalities.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
