Quantum Mechanics II
### Quantum Mechanics II (Fall '09)

Text and reference books:
J. Sakurai, Modern Quantum Mechanics; C. Cohen-Tannoudji, Quantum
Mechanics (2 vols); Landau and Lifshitz, Quantum Mechanics (Course of
Theoretical Physics, Vol.3); Schiff; and so on. Two classics are Dirac's
monograph and the Feynman lectures (vol.3).

Course outline (broadly): The quantum central force problem and angular
momentum, hydrogen atom, addition of angular momenta, perturbation
theory (time-independent non-degenerate and degenerate), Stark,Zeeman
effects, fine structure etc in the Hydrogen atom, variational methods and
the Helium atom, quasi-classical (WKB) approximations, time-dependent
potentials and perturbation theory, scattering.
