Course Description

This physics course covers Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and the concept of compatible operators. You will also learn about the Schrödinger and Heisenberg pictures of quantum mechanics and the coherent and squeezed states of the harmonic oscillator. The course concludes with two state systems and their applications to NMR and masers.

This is the second of three courses offering a sophisticated view of quantum mechanics and its proper mathematical foundation.

To understand the material in this course you should have taken Mastering Quantum Mechanics Part 1: Wave Mechanics.

Completing the 3-part Quantum Mechanics series will give you the necessary foundation to pursue advanced study or research at the graduate level in areas related to quantum mechanics

The series will follow MIT’s on campus 8.05, the second ...

Completing the 3-part Quantum Mechanics series will give you the necessary foundation to pursue advanced study or research at the graduate level in areas related to quantum mechanics

The series will follow MIT’s on campus 8.05, the second semester of the three-course sequence on undergraduate quantum mechanics, and will be equally rigorous. 8.05 is a signature course in MIT's physics program and a keystone in the education of physics majors. 

 

Learner Testimonials

I’ve thought long and hard to come up with a better MOOC than this one (I’ve completed 25 of these things over the past 2 years) and can’t do it. 8.05x is #1 and I suspect will stay that way for some time to come.

 “Being an engineering student from India trying to shift to Physics, I am often faced with the requirement to study topics on my own. Very often this has led me to feel inadequate. 8.05x was the perfect opportunity for me to both gain knowledge and evaluate my understanding on a high quality international platform. It has really exceeded my expectations. Now, at the end of fifteen weeks, I feel more confident and hopefully I am more knowledgeable.

MITx courses 8.05.1x,8.05.2x, and 8.05.3x were formerly offered in a single block. The three parts of this material provide an extremely good approach to the theory of Quantum Mechanics. The notes for the courses are very precise and it is impossible to find a single typo. Some of the exercises are hard to solve. Exams are somewhat easier. In my opinion these courses would improve a lot by providing some examples of applications and some more intuitive additional comments in selected places. Although not in MITx, I would recommend to consider taking Utokyo003, about Quantum Mechanics of Molecular Structures, as a complement. Utokyo003 provides very interesting examples of application of Quantum Mechanics to determine and explain shape, dimensions, and other properties of molecules.

I've completed the previous version of this course. It was one of the best courses I've ever listened (including my University courses...)
