Quantum Mechanics I University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

After a brief historical review, we will cover the basics of quantum theory from the perspective of wave mechanics. This includes a discussion of the wavefunction, the probability interpretation, operators, and the Schrödinger equation. We will then consider simple one-dimensional scattering and bound state problems. Next, we will cover the mathematical foundations needed to do quantum mechanics from a more modern perspective. We will review the necessary elements of matrix mechanics and linear algebra, such as finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors, computing the trace of a matrix, and finding out if a matrix is Hermitian or unitary. We will then cover Dirac notation and Hilbert spaces. The postulates of quantum mechanics will then be formalized and illustrated with examples. Classes will be conducted in English.
