PHYC 440

Quantum Mechanics

Units: 3

Students are introduced to the time-dependent and time-independent
Schrodinger equations. The Schrodinger equation is solved for examples
including potential wells and barriers, harmonic oscillators, and hydrogen
atoms. These examples illustrate the concepts of quantization of energy
and angular momentum, tunneling, wave properties of particles, and
the uncertainty principle. *Prerequisites: MATH 270 and PHYC 370, or
instructor's permission*
