|Solve a number of questions related to the lecture in the following order, make a presentation about questions you solved, and submit your answers.
1. Symmetry properties of Newton's 2nd law, Meaning and examples of "Fictitious force", Introduction to Poisson Blackets.
2. Hamiltonian mechanics, Symmetry and conservation law, Canonical transformations, Revision of basic linear algebra.
3. Mathematical tools of quantum mechanics.
4. Applications of the postulates of quantum mechanics to simple problems.
5. Simple harmonic oscillator, Issue with quantization.
6. The space-time propagator revisited, The Uncertainty principle, The density operator.
7. Identical particles, Tensor product spaces, Entanglement.
|Question sheets are provided.|
|1. Principles of Quantum Mechanics, R. Shankar.
2. Quantum Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum (Theoretical Minimum 2), L. Susskind and A. Friedman.
|Evaluated by score of assignments and presentations. Score more than 60/100 is qualified.|
