Introduction to Quantum Mechanics nd the interpretation of its solutions,
the uncertainty principles, one-dimensional problems, harmonic oscillator,
angular momentum, the hydrogen atom.
3 credits.
• Class MW 11:30-12:45 BPB 249.
• Office Hours TTh 12:45-1:30 or by arrangement.
• Textbook “Quantum Mechanics” by Griffith
• Homepage for course http://www.physics.unlv.edu/~lepp/classes/phy481/index.html
