PHYS 505 Quantum Mechanics II (Graduate)

This course will develop quantum theory and apply it to physical systems. Beginning with the fundamental experiments and phenomena, the course develops the concepts of quantum mechanics, their mathematical expression in the methods of Schrödinger and Heisenberg and the solution of problems that exhibit quantum phenomena. Use of technology for visualization is a key solution technique.

The course is designed for those seeking the credentials required by many regional accrediting bodies in order to be able to teach advanced placement, concurrent early college, and community college physics courses.

Prerequisite: a bachelor’s degree with a physics major or state certification (in any state) to teach physics at a secondary school level.

Prerequisite Courses: PHYS-501 or equivalent (recommend PHYS-502, PHYS-503 or equivalents)
