QUANTUM MECHANICS, ADVANCED COURSE | FMFN01 |

**Aim**

Quantum Mechanics is basic for all modern physics. This course gives a deeper understanding that all physicists need both experimentalists and theoreticians. Both theory and applications are treated in the course. Applications are choosen in close relations to other courses.

*Knowledge and understanding*

For a passing grade the student must

- know how to apply the theory on real problems

*Skills and abilities*

For a passing grade the student must

- know methods to determine if a Q M or classical treatment is needed

- be able to discuss and communicate Q M problems

*Judgement and approach*

For a passing grade the student must

**Contents**

Matrix representation. Dirac formalism. Hamiltonian for a particle in an electromagnetic field. Operator formalism for the harmonic oscillator. Landau levels and phonon states. Second order perturbation theory. Time-dependent perturbation theory and Fermis golden rule. General theory of angular momenta and spin. Addition of angular momenta.. The Stark and Zeeman effects. The Stern-Gerlach experiment. Elementary theory for quantization of the electromagnetic field - transitions and selection rules. The nuclear single-particle potential, the Nilsson model.
