This is the second quarter
of a two quarter sequence covering graduate quantum
mechanics. It is
aimed primarily at first year graduate students (and perhaps a few
This quarter will be a
continuation of our exploration of foundational topics in quantum
partial list of topics covered in the two quarter sequence
- Linear Algebra
- Principles of Quantization
- Angular Momentum & Spin
- Perturbation Theory
In terms of course administration, there will be regular problem
and a final examination (~40%).

on the first quarter.
Final: Tuesday March 14 10:30-12:30.
There are many good texts on
quantum mechanics. Here are a few that might be worth perusing.
Modern Quantum Mechanics
by J. J. Sakurai
Quantum Mechanics by K.
There were some queries
about group theory today. Here is a link
to some of my notes from another course. The first
few pages of the notes should be sufficient. Here is a link
to a book by Kurzweil and Stellmacher on finite groups.
