Applied Quantum Mechanics National Taiwan University
Course description：With recent advances in nanotechnology, the practical knowledge of quantum mechanics will be introduced in this engineering course. Starting from the fundamental postulates of quantum mechanics, I introduce basic techniques for solving the Schroedinger equations for simple systems. Then I move to more advanced techniques using different kinds of approximation. The contents are 1. Postulates and Schroedinger equation. 2. Simple systems, free particle, 1D problems. 3. Harmonic oscillators, simple rotors. 4. Central potential problems, hydrogen atoms. 5. Gaussian wave packets. 6. Semi-classical approximation. 6. Adiabatic approximation. 7. Perturbation theory. 8. Variational method. 9. Numerical methods. 10. Special topics. Grades: Midterm (30%), Final (30%), Homework (40%) Text Book & References: S.
