|PHYM212||Advanced Quantum Mechanics||2017-18|
|Staff of Foreign Host Institution|
|Delivery Weeks:||As agreed|
|Credits:||15 NICATS / 7.5 ECTS|
|Enrolment:||7 students (approx)|
The module covers a range of more advanced topics leading to the discussion of quantum transitions and non-relativistic scattering.
This is a Physics Core module taken at a study-abroad host institutions. The module(s) at the host institution that contribute to this module must be approved by the Stage 3 Study Abroad Co-ordinator.
This module aims to reinforce and build upon the foundations laid in PHY2021 (Quantum Mechanics I). Much of physics concerns manifestations of the electromagnetic interaction which is susceptible to perturbation techniques. The methods outlined in the module are applicable to many situations in condensed matter and nuclear physics enabling useful and informative solutions to be obtained to non-exactly-soluble problems without resort to numerical methods.
A student who has passed this module should be able to:
The syllabus should match, as far as reasonably practical, the contents of PHYM002 (Quantum Mechanics II) and must satisfy Institute of Physics Accreditation requirements and must not duplicate modules that have already been taken, or will be taken in the future, as part of the degree.
