It is recommended that students first complete 2nd level physics courses prior to study. It is assumed that students will have mathematical skills that are equivalent to MAT2100 Algebra and Calculus II.
This course extends the quantum concepts studied in PHY3303 Modern Physics. The course aims to introduce specific techniques and notations to analyse and increase comprehension of quantum mechanics, including the matrix and Dirac notation of Hilbert space, the time independent and dependent solutions of the Schrodinger equation for different energy potentials and how to utilise these solutions for the modelling of energy potentials within the atom, the theoretical modelling of tunnelling and its implications, the theoretical development of the Zeeman effect, and the implications of the quantum modelling of the hydrogen atom and how it relates to the rest of the Periodic Table.
