PHYS 103 Advanced Quantum Mechanics

Physics 103 is a graduate-level core course that continues the exploration of fundamental concepts and methods of non-relativistic quantum mechanics, as undertaken in earlier courses, while also addressing a number of advanced topics not covered elsewhere. These include continuous and discrete symmetries; permutation symmetry and basics of second quantization; perturbative techniques for time-dependent quantum phenomena, including Dyson, Magnus, and Floquet formalism; adiabatic quantum dynamics and geometric phases — along with subjects relevant to current areas of research, such as quantum measurement theory and open quantum system dynamics.
