In this course, we continue our journey back through physics, re-covering material that was introduced in your first two years here. This semester we will go back over the quantum physics which was covered in your modern physics class. Now that you have a year and half more math and physics under your belt, we will use it to gleefully attack quantum physics.

In this course we will (following the cue of Griffiths) cover a broad range of tools, techniques, and applications of quantum mechanics. Time constraints prevent us from going into a great deal of depth in many of the areas that we will cover, but you should come out of this course with a much greater appreciation of the breadth of quantum physics than you had coming in.
