The main goals are to deepen the knowledge of the basic principles of quantum mechanics and to consider some applications. The following subjects are considered: electron in a magnetic field: Landau levels, the Quantum Hall Effect, the Aharonov-Bohm effect; spin, spin in a magnetic field, spin resonance, addition of angular momenta; elements of quantum information; quantum computation and cryptography; identical particles; atomic states; fine structure of atomic levels; variational principle, helium atom, covalent bonding; semiclassical approximation; time-dependent perturbation theory; emission and absorption of radiation by atoms, selection rules and scattering theory.
90 credits including Quantum Mechanics 1, or equivalent. Swedish for basic eligibility for higher education programmes and English A/5. Requirements for Swedish only apply if the course is held in Swedish.
Applicants in some programs at Umeå University have guaranteed admission to this course. The number of places for a single course may therefore be limited.
Application deadline was
