Course objectives:

In this course, the student will learn how to apply the ideas and the

formalism of quantum mechanics to understand the electronic structure

of atoms and molecules as well as the interaction of quantum systems

with light and particles. Also, the student will learn approximation techniques to solve Schrödinger equation.

Relation to departmental goals: The student will get the experience to

Find approximate solutions for quantum systems and acquire the skills

To understand the behavior of interacting quantum systems.


  1. Angular momentum
  2. Spin
  3. Identical particles.
  4. Time – independent perturbation theory.
  5. Variational principle.
  6. Time – dependent perturbation theory.


Assignments: There will be about eight home work problems during

the semester.


Two – midterm exams                 40%

                 Home works                10%

                 Final Exam                   50%


Academic Integrity Statement:

Violation of academic integrity is absolutely and totally prohibited by

University regulations. If an academic dishonesty is committed by a student then he will be subjected to hard university punishment.
