Physics 342    Graduate Quantum Mechanics II

Instructor:  Savdeep Sethi

Textbooks:  Principles of Quantum Mechanics  by R. Shankar

Location & Time: KPTC 105,  T-Th 10:30 - 11:50

Office Hours: T 3-4

Grader: Adam Wang

Course Outline:

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 adventurous sufficiently
advanced undergraduates).

This quarter will be a continuation of our exploration of foundational topics in quantum mechanics. A
partial list of topics covered in the two quarter sequence includes

In terms of course administration, there will be regular problem sets (~60%)
and a final examination (~40%).
See the following link for information 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. Gottfried

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.
