PHY 341

Welcome to PHY 341 – Quantum Mechanics I homepage

We will use this space to post extra course materials, like homework, solutions, announcements, etc.

If you have any interesting and related links, we can add them too.

  • Announcements and homework
    • Asynchronous video: To be posted.

    • Class recording: Wed Jan 26 | Mon Jan 24 | Wed Jan 19
    • Announcement Jan 17 2022: Scheduled class, 12-1 MWF, SEng-115 (was SEng-108)
    • Announcement Jan 23 2022: Research Experience for Undergraduates
    • PHY 341 Syllabus
    • Useful math formulas
    • Homework 1a
  • Codes and other links
    Most codes are in the Jupyter notebook format. You can download it and open it with Jupyter. If you do not have access to a Jupyter installation or server, you can go to try.jupyter.org on the cloud, and upload the notebook there.
    Note: Due to some weird, nonsensical rule of the site disallowing the “.ipynb” file extension, I have the programs in .zip (or plain .txt) formats. If you download a zip file, unzip it to recover the .ipynb file. If you download the .txt file (right click then save), just rename “somefile-ipynb.txt” to “somefile.ipynb”.

    • Local Jupyter/Python server
    • cocalc.com
    • Simulation of averages by ramdom sampling in free fall in zip format.
    • Motion of a quantum oscillator: (a) You may run this Glowscript version in your web browser; or (b) Program_8.2_sdlf.ipynb. Download and save the named program, making sure to extract all including the associated library files, ode.py, vpmnb.py in one place. Upload the files to your Jupyter notebook.
