Quantum Mechanics I Phys 511
Welcome to the Quantum Mechanics I home page. This page will be updated as necessary throughout the semester. From time to time, I will post files on the Public subdirectory of my ITD directory. To transfer files use a file transfer protocol such as WS-FTP95LE and go into your ITD home directory. Then change directory to ~pberman which will put you in the public space of my ITD directory where the files will be stored.
Office hours are Thursday, 2-3 and Wednesday, 3-4. You can stop by my office (4227 Randall) at any time if you have some questions. There is a user group for the course – firstname.lastname@example.org which can be used to share information with the class. I will try to add everyone to the group. If you are not a member of the group, enter your ITD account, go to dua, and add yourself to the group (you can check to see if you are a member by typing memberships uniquename). You are also encouraged to set up smaller users groups for discussing course material.
The required text for the course is Merzbacher, Quantum Mechanics, 3rd edition. A recommended, but not required text is Sakuri, Modern Quantum Mechanics. There is also a course pack that is available at Ulrich’s.
