This 9 week course aims to teach quantum mechanics to anyone with a reasonable college-level understanding of physical science or engineering. Quantum mechanics was once mostly of interest to physicists, chemists and other basic scientists. Now the concepts and techniques of quantum mechanics are essential in many areas of engineering and science such as materials science, nanotechnology, electronic devices, and photonics.

This course is a substantial introduction to quantum mechanics and how to use it. It is specifically designed to be accessible not only to physicists but also to students and technical professionals over a wide range of science and engineering backgrounds.

- A conceptual understanding of quantum mechanics
- Key physics concepts
- Key ideas in using quantum mechanical waves
- Mathematics of quantum mechanical waves
- Quantum mechanics of systems that change in time
- Measurements in quantum mechanics
- The uncertainty principle
- The hydrogen atom
- How to solve real problems

**Introduction to quantum mechanics**

How quantum mechanics is important in the everyday world, the bizarre aspects and continuing evolution of quantum mechanics, and how we need it for engineering much of modern technology.

**Schroedinger’s wave equation**

Getting to Schroedinger’s wave equation. Key ideas in using quantum mechanical waves — probability densities, linearity. The "two slit" experiment and its paradoxes.

**Getting "quantum" behavior**

The "particle in a box", eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. Mathematics of quantum mechanical waves.

**Quantum mechanics of systems that change in time**

Time variation by superposition of wave functions. The harmonic oscillator. Movement in quantum mechanics — wave packets, group velocity and particle current.

**Measurement in quantum mechanics**

Operators in quantum mechanics — the quantum-mechanical Hamiltonian. Measurement and its paradoxes — the Stern-Gerlach experiment.

**Writing down quantum mechanics simply**

A simple general way of looking at the mathematics of quantum mechanics — functions, operators, matrices and Dirac notation. Operators and measurable quantities. The uncertainty principle.

**The hydrogen atom**

Angular momentum in quantum mechanics — atomic orbitals. Quantum mechanics with more than one particle. Solving for the the hydrogen atom. Nature of the states of atoms.

**How to solve real problems**

Approximation methods in quantum mechanics.
