Module code: PSF60

ECTS Credit Points:

Module Type:



Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course the student is able to,
1. Comprehend and apply the laws of quantum physics to the real world.
2. Acquire technical skills for solving complex problems.
3. Analyze a variety of exactly solvable systems involving bound states and scattering processes.
4. Develop and apply approximation methods to the study of systems arising in atomic, molecular, nuclear and solid state physics.
5. Compare the theoretical predictions to the experimental results.
6. Evaluate modern results (those that are described in published scientific journals) based on extensive knowledge of the fundamental laws of quantum physics.

Subjects covered:
1. Non-Relativistic Quantum Mechanics
2. Quantum Chemistry

Learning Material: The HOU publications can be viewed

Teaching Method: Distance education with five Contact Sessions held at weekends during the academic year

Evaluation: Completion of six written assignments during the academic year, the average grade of which constitute a 30 percent of each student's grade, if a pass is obtained in the final or repetitive examination. Final exam grades constitute a 70 percent of the students' final course grade. More information is available
