Course information

Prerequisites

This course assumes that the student has a knowledge of mathematics and physics at the undergraduate level, and has passed courses in Quantum Mechanics at Master and/or advanced Bachelor level.

Course content

The course consists of three main parts:

  1. Scattering Theory
  2. Relativistic Quantum Mechanics
  3. (non-relativistic) Second Quantization

Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to advance the students' understanding of non-relativistic and relativistic quantum mechanics. The course is planned as a continuation of "Quantum Mechanics" (FKA081) and will give the necessary background for studies in statistical quantum mechanics, nuclear and particle physics, and quantum field theory. After having taken Advanced Quantum Mechanics the student will have acquired the following skills:
