Prerrequisitos

Learners should be familiar with quantum mechanics at the level of 8.05x

Sobre este curso

Omitir Sobre este curso
In this quantum physics course, you will learn about the primary perturbative methods in quantum mechanics: degenerate and non-degenerate time-independent perturbation theory, the semi-classical WKB approximation, time-dependent perturbation theory, the adiabatic approximation, and scattering theory. Together, these approximation methods represent a valuable set of tools that are broadly applicable across almost all of physics. We will use these methods to study a variety of systems that do not admit analytic solutions, including the fine structure of hydrogen, tunneling rates, radiative decay and molecules. We will also investigate the quantum mechanical description of a particle in a magnetic field, and discuss the symmetries associated with multi-particle systems in detail.

This is the final course of a series of courses on edX:
  • 8.04x Quantum Mechanics
  • 8.05x Mastering Quantum Mechanics
  • 8.06x Applications of Quantum Mechanics

The course is based on the MIT course, 8.06: Quantum Mechanics III. At MIT, 8.06 is the final course in a three-course undergraduate sequence in Quantum Mechanics. 8.06 is a capstone in the education of physics majors, preparing them for advanced and specialized study in any field related to quantum physics.

Testimonios de los estudiantes

“I have completed more than 30 MOOCs and 8.04x/8.05x are among the very best I have done. Clear, organized lectures and accompanying lecture notes, challenging but doable problems, and a helpful discussion forum. This series provides an excellent and accessible introduction to Quantum Mechanics. I am eagerly awaiting 8.06x!”

Preguntas frecuentes

I’ve taken 8.04x. Will I be able to do this course?

We recommend taking 8.05x the next time it runs, and then joining us for 8.06x afterwards. It would be difficult to successfully pass this course without all of the prerequisite knowledge.

¿Quién puede hacer este curso?

Lamentablemente, las personas de uno o más de los siguientes países o regiones no podrán registrarse para este curso: Irán, Cuba y la región de Crimea en Ucrania. Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
