Advanced Quantum Mechanics


Advanced Quantum Mechanics, the second volume on quantum mechanics by Franz Schwabl, discusses nonrelativistic multi-particle systems, relativistic wave equations and relativistic quantum fields. Characteristic of the authors work are the comprehensive mathematical discussions in which all intermediate steps are derived and where numerous examples of application and exercises help the reader gain a thorough working knowledge of the subject. The topics treated in the book lay the foundation for advanced studies in solid-state physics, nuclear and elementary particle physics. This text both extends and complements Schwabls introductory Quantum Mechanics, which covers nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and offers a short treatment of the quantization of the radiation field. The fourth edition has been thoroughly revised with new material having been added. Furthermore, the layout of the figures has been unified, which should facilitate comprehension.




Advanced Quantum Mechanics



This core third year physics course develops quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics will be generalised to a broad range of systems, from matter to photons. Topics covered will include foundations, symmetries, angular momentum, and the Lagrangian formulation of quantum mechanics. It also gives an introduction to many-body quantum mechanics, entanglement, bosons and fermions, occupation number notation, theory of open quantum systems, density matrices and master equations, dynamical calculations and approximations in quantum field theories, non-locality and reality and quantum measurement. This course is required for the physics major, the theoretical physics major, and is recommended for those intending to do the honours year in Physics.


Chem 221A is a graduate level quantum mechanics course designed to introduce first or second year graduate students in physical or theoretical chemistry to advanced quantum mechanics as applied in modern physical chemistry. The course assumes a good working knowledge of linear algebra and calculus, as well as at least one semester of intermediate quantum mechanics at the undergraduate level. Material is presented in the course predominantly through lecture (3 hours a week) and an optional weekly discussion section. Your final grade is largely based off of exams (70%), with a contribution from weekly problem sets (30%).


Advanced Quantum MechanicsType:BookAppearance:The Day of the DoctorAdvanced Quantum Mechanics was a book of advanced quantum (TV: The Day of the Doctor) and temporal theory (PROSE: The Day of the Doctor) that the Eleventh Doctor was reading when Clara Oswald entered the TARDIS on her motorbike after her day teaching at Coal Hill School. The dust jacket of the book had images of the TARDIS in its police box shape on both the front and back covers. (TV: The Day of the Doctor)


This is an advanced course on quantum mechanics. It covers a wide range of topics, including an introduction to condensed matter physics and scattering theory. Please do email me if you find any typos or mistakes.


PHY 350 - Advanced Quantum MechanicsCourse Units: 1.0 (TBD: Staff) A second course in quantum mechanics with applications to selected problems in atomic, nuclear, and solid state physics. Prerequisite(s): PHY 220 and MTH 117 , or permission of the instructor.


Relativistic wave equations, second quantization in many body problems and relativistic wave equations, Feynman-Dyson perturbation theory, applications to many body problems, application to quantum electrodynamics, elements of renormalization.


Students acquire a more deeper knowledge on the nature and the power of quantum mechanics. In particular they know how to apply perturbation theory, to employ scattering theory and to apply symmetry arguments. Students also get in touch with more modern aspects of quantum mechanics like in questions about entanglement, non-localities and the measurement problem.


The course gives you an ability to perform calculations and derivations using a modern quantum mechanical formalism, especially in vector spaces with continuous eigenvalue spectra. You should also achieve an improved ability to assimilate the contents of research articles in modern physics and be able to apply the formalism on concrete physical problems.


This course will cover advanced topics of quantum mechanics including postulates of quantum mechanics, tools of quantum mechanics, Dirac notation, Simple Harmonic oscillator (studied using raising and lowering operators), orbital and spin angular momentum (studied using raising and lowering operators), Relativistic Quantum Mechanics, Density matrix and Schroedinger's cat, Non-locality and Bell's inequalities, Quantum cryptography (distributing secure keys), Basic ideas of Quantum computing (qubits, quantum teleportation). (Last 4 topics non examinable in final assessment, only in the mini-dissertation).


The curriculum leading to the BA degree in physics is designed for maximum flexibility consistent with a thorough coverage of the essential principles of physics. Degree requirements include introductory and advanced physics and mathematics courses, as well as physics electives that allow students to pursue specific interests.


In general, students should take the most advanced courses for which they have the appropriate prerequisites. Entering students will be given a placement for either PHYS 13100 Mechanics or PHYS 14100 Honors Mechanics based on their mathematics and physics background. Either course is appropriate for students planning to major (or minor) in physics.


Accreditation examinations are administered for the content of PHYS 12100-PHYS 12200-PHYS 12300 and PHYS 14100-PHYS 14200-PHYS 14300. The first examination may be taken by incoming students only at the time of matriculation in the College. Students who pass the first examination (for PHYS 12100 or PHYS 14100) will receive credit for the lecture part of the course only and will then be invited to try the next examination of the sequence. All students who receive advanced standing on the basis of a physics accreditation examination are interviewed by the undergraduate program chair to determine the extent of their lab experience. Additional laboratory work may be required.


In 1935, Albert Einstein and collaborators wrote two papers atthe Institute for Advanced Study. One was on quantum mechanics [1]and the other was on black holes [2]. The paper on quantummechanics is very famous and influential. It pointed out a...


The aim of the course is to present in depth the basic theoretical tools in quantum mechanics with a focus on degenerate N-body systems and open systems. The concepts discussed in the course will be illustrated in the tutorials by significant physical applications, often inspired by the current research especially in the field of cold atoms.


In-depth quantum mechanics based on the Dirac formalism with bra and ket vectors, operators and observables. Schrödinger and Heisenberg pictures. Scattering theory and its applications in nuclear and particle physics, neutron and synchrotron radiation scattering. Basic interpretation of quantum mechanics. Quantum technology now and in emerging technologies, in particular quantum information and quantum optics.


To study the consequences of the time-dependence of the wavefunction in quantum mechanics, the adiabatic evolution of quantum states and the emergence of the Berry phase, the quantum mechanics of many-particle systems, and second quantisation.


  • Calculate the time-dependence of a wavefunction, and its consequences for observables.

  • Derive and apply the results of time-dependent perturbation theory up to first order.

  • Derive and apply Fermi's golden rule, and explain the relevance of selection rules for atomic transitions and opto-electronic phenomena in solids.

  • Explain the origin of the Berry phase using simple calculations of the types given in lectures.

  • Explain and apply the laws of quantum mechanics for many-particle systems and the main techniques used to study their implications.

  • Derive the main results of second quantisation.

  • Describe, and apply to unseen problems, all the topics in the syllabus.

Comprehensive lecture notes should be taken down from the slides during the video lectures, and will be supplemented by summary notes and handouts distributed via PDF format. These documents, together with interactive applets and the record of problems set, lecture rescheduling and similar information, will be made available through the VLE. 041b061a72
