PS 210 Quantum Mechanics II (3 units)

This course is a further exploration of the concepts of quantum mechanics. It covers selected topics in advanced quantum mechanics for solving Schrodinger’s equation including approximation methods, semiclassical treatment of radiation-matter interaction, application to physical systems and structural foundations of quantum theory.
