|Module Title||Quantum mechanics II|
|Semester taught||Semester 2|
|Module Lecturer||Prof. Tristan McLoughlin|
|Module Prerequisites||MAU34403 Quantum mechanics I|
- This module is examined in a 2-hour examination at the end of Semester 2.
- Continuous assessment contributes 20% towards the overall mark.
- Re-assessment, if needed, consists of 100% exam.
11 weeks of teaching with 3 lectures and 1 tutorial per week.
On successful completion of this module, students will be able to
- Use symmetries to simplify complex problems.
- Apply perturbative methods to the study of quantum mechanical problems.
- Demonstrate an entry-level understanding of 20th and 21st century physics.
- Symmetries in quantum mechanics
- Time-independent perturbation theory
- Time-dependent perturbation theory
