Description

Advanced Quantum Mechanics (Fall 2013, Standard Univ.).

Taught by Professor Leonard Susskind, this course will explore the various types of quantum systems that occur in nature, from harmonic oscillators to atoms and molecules, photons, and quantum fields. Students will learn what it means for an electron to be a fermion and how that leads to the Pauli exclusion principle. They will also learn what it means for a photon to be a boson and how that allows us to build radios and lasers. The strange phenomenon of quantum tunneling will lead to an understanding of how nuclei emit alpha particles and how the same effect predicts that cosmological space can "boil." Finally, the course will delve into the world of quantum field theory and the relation between waves and particles. (from theoreticalminimum.com)
