Course Description

Quantum mechanics in three dimensions. translational and rotational invariance and conservation of linear and angular momentum, center-of-mass coordinates. Position-space representation ofthe angular momentum operator, orbital angular momentum eigenfunctions. Bound states of central potentials, including the Coulomb potential and the hydrogen atom. Approximation methods: time-independent perturbations, applications to the Stark effect, the Zeeman effect, spin-orbit coupling in hydrogen. The variational method. Time dependent perturbations. Indistinguishable particles: multielectron atoms, covalent bonding. Scattering. Electromagnetic interactions: emission and absorption of radiation.
