Advanced Quantum Theory
Course at Universität Heidelberg, Spring 2011
Module MVAMO2 of the Master's Curriculum
After a recap of basic quantum theory, a selection of the following topics will be covered: Scattering theory. States on composite systems, entanglement and Bell's inequalities. Open quantum systems. Systems of identical particles. Applications to quantum chemistry, Bose and Fermi systems. Functional integrals.
Theory and mathematics courses from the Bachelor curriculum, in particular Quantum Mechanics.
Exam and Credits
The course is worth 4 credit points.
To pass the course and obtain the credit points, students must attend the exercise sessions, do the homework, and pass the exam at the end of the course. Details about this will be discussed in class.
The exam will take place on Friday, July 22, 2011, from 9:15 to 10:45 in großer Hörsaal, Philosophenweg 12.
