Nagoya University, School of Engineering Lecture information system (SYLLABUS)

Quantum Mechanics B(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 3 the previous term
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory
Lecturer : Yukio TANAKA Professor 

•Course Purpose
The aim is to understand the basic concepts of quantum mechanics, which is the basis for studying applied physics, and to acquire basic computational method. As a result, we will have a broader interest and interest in the quantum world and quantum phenomena.
By learning this lecture, the goal is to be able to achieve the following:
"Achievement target".
1. Understand the Schrodinger equation in the central force field.
2. Understand the energy levels and wave functions of hydrogen atoms and solve related problems.
3. Solving the Schrodinger equation of a system with a magnetic field.
4. Understand the fundamental concepts for angular momentum and spin.
5. Understand the mathematical background of quantum mechanics.
6. Understand the same kind of particles (fermions, Bose particles).
7. Understand approximation theory such as perturbation and solve related problems. We master basics of quantum mechanics and apply fundamental ability to solve various problems.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Mathematics 1,2 with Exercises, Mechanics with Exercises, Atomic Physics, Quantum Mechanics A with Exercises

•Course Topics
1.Electron in a central force 2. Energy levels of hydrogen atoms 3.Shrodinger quation in the presence of magnetic field 4.Angular momentum and Spin 5.Mathmatical background of quamtum mechanics 6.Identical particles 7.Perturbation and variational method. Read the designated part of the textbook before each class. After the lecture, you will have to solve the textbook example and chapter end problems yourself.
