    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Gartstien is by far my most admired and respectable professor. His teaching style is first and foremost from the eyes of an experimentalist, but his heart is that of a philosopher. The course is rich and beautifully complex (haha). Dr. Gartstien takes time to make you think about the problem, and ensures that you have enough work to think about it at least a little bit every day. Truly a phenomenal course. The homeworks are realistic and thought provoking, the exams are take home (don't squander the time), and the professor is truly compassionate about the subject, and shows this with every breath.

    Course highlights:

    This is incomplete, and just off the top of my head, but you will learn: Schrodingers equation- time dependent, and time independent, What it means to normalize a wavefunction, probability, probability densities, Fourier analysis, single/double particle systems, lowering and raising operators, reflection and transmission in a quantum perspective, power, work, energy, potential wells, Dirac Delta functions, Square wells, Infinite potential wells, 3D particle behavior in a 2 particle system, Hamiltonians, eigenenergies, eigenvalues, complex systems, uncertainty principle, wavepackets, phase and group velocity, quantum numbers, spin 1/2 system.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to his office hours!!!! He is spectacular. Take detailed notes in class, they will save you on the homeworks and exams
