SYLLABUS FOR PHY 662 Quantum Mechanics II We will continue the study of QM by applying the formalism to real world situations. This will involve using various approximations. The best way to acquire the necessary skills is to do problems so there will be many HW problems. HWs are due the Tuesday after they are assigned. DO THEM and as many other problems from the book as you can. Text: Principles of Quantum Mechanics 2nd Edition by R. Shankar. There are many other good books available. I also like Sakurai Modern QM Office hours: Wed. 4-5, Thur. 5-6. Grading: There will be 3 exams and a final. The final will count as 2 exams. HW will also count as 2 exams and I will drop your lowest exam (or HW grade). Topics to be covered: Identical Particles, Semiclassical approximation, variational methods, both time independent and time dependent perturbation theory, scattering theory and if time permits many body physics, the Dirac Equation and advanced topics in path integration..
