Quantum theory for applied physics University of Tsukuba
We will study quantum mechanical methods used to theoretically understand physical phenomena. Specifically, we will learn about the second quantization method, Fermi fluid theory, and the linear response calculation method using Green's functions. Specific issues of quantum transport, magnetism, and superconductivity will also be described.
Students acquire skills to apply quantum theory to many body phenomena in condensed matter physics.
Related to “advanced base knowledge that should be shared by research field you major in“ and “specialized subject required for engineering application”.
The undergraduate Quantum Mechanics course is necessary to understand this much advanced course.
There will be homework and a final exam. The final grade for the course will be based on the Final exam (50%) and homework (50%). Late problem sets will not be accepted. For conflicts that are known in advance, such as holidays or travel, arrangements should be made to turn in problem sets before the deadline. Unforeseeable circumstances such as illness or emergencies will be considered and will not affect the final grade.
This course teaches techniques to calculate quantum phenomena in condensed matter theory. The contents of this course include second quantization, Fermi liquid theory, and linear response theory by Green function method. If time permits, the lecture will address specific problems in condensed matter physics.
