The course aims to provide the students with the underpinning knowledge that will enable them to think constructively about phenomena that relate to the quantum structure of matter. It is intended that the students will gain a broad appreciation of the hierarchy of interactions that give rise to the energy levels of atoms and the consequent structure of the associated spectroscopic transitions. In comparison to the previous years more emphasis will be put on the general, mathematical structure of quantum theory, tackling topics such as Hilbert spaces and time independent perturbation theory.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
The content reflects the learning outcomes of the course:
This course builds on PX 2510 to evaluate the eigenstates various systems including atomic systems. The mathematics of the uncertainty principle, expectation values, states, spin, probability and probability currents is formalized and time independent perturbation theory is explained.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 1 two-hour examination (75%) Continuous assessment (25%) - three class tests.
By dialogue with the lecturer in class and by problem classes.
Immediately with problem classes and within two weeks (usually one) for class tests.
