AP 228 Advanced Quantum Mechanics

This class builds on basic concepts introduced in the Applied Quantum Mechanics course (MSE227) and expands towards more advanced topics. It covers angular momentum, spin angular momentum, including Clebsch-Gordan coefficients and Kramers theorem. Approximation methods are also addressed, such as perturbation theory, variational method, and time-dependent perturbation within the interaction picture, as well as adiabatic theorem and Berry's phase and quantum theory of scattering. Finally, relativistic quantum mechanics and Dirac equation will be introduced.
