PHY 325 - Classical and Quantum Waves (4 Cr.)


The first part of the course will cover physics of wave motion and the classical wave equation. Mathematical topics covered will include ordinary and partial differential equations, Fourier series and integrals and normal modes. The second part of the course will cover the basic principles of quantum mechanics: wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, quantum waves and the Schrodinger equation, energy levels, reflection and transmission coefficients, applications to atomic physics. Pre-requisite: PHY 126 . Spring semester, first offered spring 2023. Dukan.
