PHYS 3602 - Elementary Quantum Mechanics


Credit(s): 3
Lecture Hour(s): 3
Lecture Hours Schedule Type: Blended, Lecture, Online
Lab Hour(s): 3

This is an introductory course in quantum mechanics. The basic theory and formalism of quantum mechanics will be developed, followed by their application to a variety of model systems from atomic and molecular physics and chemistry, including a discussion of electron spin with reference to both single- and multi-electron atoms. The lab will consist of classic experiments in quantum mechanics and spectroscopy.

Prerequisite(s): MATH 1203 , MATH 1202  or MATH 2200  and PHYS 2201  with grades of “C-” or higher, or department consent.
Recommended Preparation: MATH 3200 .
Note: Credit for both CHEM 3602  and Physics 3602 will not be allowed.
