20410436 - FS420 - QUANTUM MECHANICS

Provide a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics, discussing the main experimental evidence and the resulting theoretical interpretations that led to the crisis of classical physics, and illustrating its basic principles: notion of probability, wave-particle duality, indetermination principle. Quantum dynamics, the Schroedinger equation and its solution for some relevant physical systems are then described.

An english version of the book is also available:
Sakurai J.J., Modern Quantum Mechanics (Revised Edition) [Addison-Wesley, 1994]


Type of delivery of the course

The course consists of theoretical frontal lectures, held by the lecturer of the course, and exercises, carried out in part by the professor and partly by another lecturer. Both the lessons and the exercises are carried out in the classroom and on the blackboard.

Attendance

Attendance is not mandatory but is strongly recommended.

Type of evaluation

The exam consists of a written test, which involves the resolution of one or more exercises, and an oral test. The written test is optional. The exercises of exams of previous years are available on the course website.
