Portland-State-University 2022-2023 Bulletin

Ph 412 Quantum Mechanics II

Introduction to the three-dimensional Schrodinger equation and applications such as band theory, selection rules, and molecules. The first half of the course will focus on exactly solvable models and analytic solutions. The second half will emphasize approximation methods in quantum mechanics, including perturbation theory, the variational principle, and the WKB approximation. The use of scientific software and modeling to solve quantum mechanical problems will be emphasized.
