Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject follows the previously taught subject 'Introduction to quantum physics and chemistry'. Its goal is to introduce more advanced chapters of quantum mechanics.

Teaching methods



The subject is focused on matrix representation of quantum mechanics, additivity of angular momenta, perturbation theory, electromagnetic transitions in quantum systems, second quantization and application of quantum mechanics, such as quantum cryptography and quantum teleportation.

Compulsory literature:

C.C. Tannoudji, B. Diu, F. Laloe, Quantum mechanics, Hermann (1998) R. Shankar, Principles of Quantum Mechanics, Springer (1994) E. Merzbacher, Quantum mechanics, John Wiley & Sons (2001)

Recommended literature:
