Honors Course
This is an advanced undergraduate course in quantum mechanics. It will build on material mastered in previous core courses (e.g., PHYS 4010 - Introduction to Electromagnetism and Quantum Mechanics). The course will go deeper into formal aspects of quantum mechanics, three-dimensional quantum mechanics, identical particles, perturbation theory, the variational principle and the WKB approximation. Should time allow, the adiabatic approximation and topics from quantum information science may be introduced as well.
