Subject

Based on the undergraduate learning of Quantum Mechanics this course provides advanced knowledge in Quantum Mechanics according to the following topics: Identical particles, He-atom, Hartree- and Hartree-Fock approximation. Scattering theory, scattering amplitude and cross section, Green functions, Lippmann-Schwinger equation, Born series, method of partial waves. Motion in electromagnetic field, Aharonov-Bohm effect, Landau levels. Time evolution and pictures in Quantum Mechanics (Schrödinger, Heisenberg and Dirac pictures). Adiabatic motion and Berry phase. Relativistic Quantum Mechanics: Klein-Gordon equation, Dirac equation, continuity equation, Lorentz invariance, spin and total angular momentum, free electron and positron, non-relativistic limit, spin-orbit interaction.
