This is an exercise course corresponding to the lecture course Quantum Mechanics II (ZUB.Q206).
Students will be able to get a better understanding by solving problems.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
* Explain the energy spectrum of a hydrogen atom and its behavior in a background magnetic field by using Schroedinger's equation.
* Calculate the cross sections of scattering processes.
Schroedinger's equation, angular momentum, spin, hydrogen atom, Zeeman effect, fine structure, scattering cross section, Rutherford scattering, partial wave expansion
