Quantum Mechanics I University of Tsukuba
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.
