This is an advanced course in quantum mechanics. We want to provide a working knowledge of potential diffusion processes in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. You will also have the quantum relativistic theory in first quantization and the functional integral.

Composition of angular momenta, clebsch–Gordan coefficients, the Wigner-Eckart theorem of Integral and Feynman's formulation of quantum mechanics. Applications. Potential and gauge transformations steady-state perturbation theory. Theory of time-dependent perturbations. Case of a pe-targeted disruption and resonance. Transition to continuous and Fermi's golden rule. Absorption and emission of radiation; Electric dipole approximation. Selection rules. Elements of the theory of elastic scattering. Cross section and scattering amplitude in the case of elastic. Approximation and Rutherford cross-section. Development in partial wave scattering amplitudes. Total cross section and the optical theorem. Relativistic quantum mechanics, the Klein-Gordon equation and Dirac. Electrodynamics and perturbation theory.
Lectures, including the illustration of the theory, and applications.
