Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to explain fundamental experiments and theoretical foundations of quantum mechanics. Students are proficient in Dirac's formalism, basic operator algebra and are able to solve simple single-particle problems (e.g. free particle, harmonic oscillator, hydrogen atom) employing various mathematical techniques. Furthermore students understand basic principles of the quantum mechanical description of physical variables (e.g. angular momentum, spin).

Subject of course

Foundations of quantum mechanics: fundamental experiments, Schrödinger equation, wave mechanics, Dirac formalism, eigenvalue problems, scattering theory, angular momentum and spin, harmonic oscillator, measurement processes in quantum theory, hydrogen atom, perturbation theory.

Teaching methods

Involving students in the lecture by asking questions, tutorials to solve problems independently and to present the results as well as plena to discuss and reiterate difficult or complex topics.

Examination modalities

Two written exams (80%):

22.11.2019 and 24.1.2020 at  2 pm
In each exam 40% of the points are needed as a minimum.
(for numerical reasons 39.58% are enough in the 1. test)

An additional test on (CANCELLED!) 20.3.2020 starting at 16:00 in the FH 8 Nöbauer HS replaces the exam in which less points have been gained.

Duration of tests: 2 1/2 hours; exam tasks from lectures and tutorials; you are allowed to take with you:  pen(s). Student ID.

 

Tutorium (20%):

The prepared exercises can be marked with a cross online in the TUWEL. The tutors use the crosses list to randomly select students for presentations. Each student must present at least two times. Voluntary presentation is not possible. The presentation is not graded.

If a cross is found to be unjustified during the presentation, all the crosses for this week will be deleted for this person. A cross is justified if the person can show that he or she has worked intensively on the task and was able to work out a solution (regardless of whether the solution is right or wrong).

A minimum of 50% off all exercises must be marked with a cross! Note that the Tutorium with the least marked exercises is not included (e.g. for a missed tutorium in case of illness).

Overall grade:

The overall grade is composed of the tutorium (20%) and two written exams (80%). 50% of the combined points are required to pass.

[87.5%,100.0%]  => Note 1
[75.0%,87.5%) => Note 2
[62.5%,75.0%) => Note 3
[50.0%,62.5%) => Note 4
[0.0%,50.0%) => Note 5
