Thus module is a continuation of Quantum Mechanics I and presents Quantum Mechanics from a mathematical perspective.
The aims of this module are:
- to build on the the mathematical description of Quantum Mechanics previously learnt in part I,
- to introduce the student to the theory of the angular momentum in Quantum Mechanics,
- to provide thorough knowledge of Quantum Dynamics.
