Course Outcomes

Concepts of Quantum Mechanics

Understand the mechanics of operators, eigenstates and eigenvalues. Learn how to build wave functions, estimate expectation values and standard deviations, and apply the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.

Mathematical Techniques

Manipulate the Schrödinger equation to solve for wave functions.

Solutions for Standard Potentials

Develop free-particle and bound-state solutions to the Schrödinger equation. (In particular, harmonic oscillator, infinite and finite square-well, finite barrier potentials…).


Construct simple solutions for Hydrogen atom, angular momentum and spin systems, atoms and solids.
