This course is a continuation of our study of non-relativistic quantum mechanics. We will explore more advanced techniques and study specific examples from atomic, solid state, and nuclear physics. Over the course of the second semester, we will work through part II of the text book, including Perturbation Theory, Variational Principle, Identical Particles, Scattering, and other advance topics.

HW 01 due date Feb 07 11:59pm. Required reading Ch 11.1. It is good idea to review Ch 1.6 of the textbook.

HW 02 due date Feb 14 11:59pm. Required reading Ch 11.1-11.4, 11.7. It is good idea to review Ch 10 of the textbook.

**Redo**HW 04 due date Mar 23 11:59pm.HW 05 due date Mar 30 11:59pm. Required reading beginning of Ch 12. Recommended reading Griffiths “Introduction to Quantum Mechanics” chapter “Identical particles”

hw 06 due date Apr 13 11:59pm. Required reading beginning of ch 12. Recommended reading Griffiths “introduction to quantum mechanics” chapter “identical particles”

Read chapter 13 (scattering), you may skip phase shift analysis section 13.5. But have a glance 13.5 - resonances starting at page 473, especially if you are inclined to be a particle physicist.

hw 07 due date Apr 27 11:59pm. Required reading chapter 13 and 14.5. Skip the phase shift analysis in section 13.5.

hw 08 due date May 04 11:59pm. Reading 14.5 and 14.7 (note that in class we do different (simplified) treatment. Recommended reading Griffiths 11.1-11.3.

We started (essentially only 1st page of the notes) - Time-independent perturbations (1st order)

- We started working on Ch. 11 (covered only 2 pages so far), feel free to read ahead and review full notes above. It will be easier to follow them during the next class.

- Time-independent perturbations (1st order), also finding the perturbed eigenstate

- Continued Example: Stark effect, Hydrogen in constant electric field and finished

- Relativistic correction to Hydrogen like atom and Feynman-Hellmann theorem

- He atom (continued)
- Hydrogen molecule ion
- Discussion of chemistry. Ionic and covalent bond.

- Identical particles. Symmetric and anti-symmetric wave functions under exchange. Fermions and bosons.
- Identical particles, exchange force.
