Course description and aims

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.

Student learning outcomes

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.
* Apply the variational and perturbative methods.

Keywords

Schroedinger's equation, angular momentum, spin, hydrogen atom, Zeeman effect, fine structure, variational method, perturbation theory

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

In every class students will be given some problems and solve them.
Solution will be explained in the latter half of the class.
