Fundamental Quantum Physics, 7.5 credits

About this education

An introduction to quantum physics with emphasis on understanding of the fundamental concepts rather than mathematical methods. The general quantum mechanical formalism and conceptual apparatus is developed by studies of simple systems like the double slit experiment for particles and the Stern-Gerlach apparatus. Topics treated in the course include the wave-particle duality of matter, the probability interpretation of quantum mechanics, the uncertainty principle, quantization of physical entities like energy and spin, and particle wavefunctions.
