Roughly, the course will cover angular momentum, spin, charged particles in electric and magnetic fields,
identical paticles, stationary perturbation theory, variational approximations,
density matrices for pure and mixed ensembles, time reversal,
semi-classical (WKB) approximations,
time-dependent perturbative approximations
and scattering in three dimensions.
