This physics course covers Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and the concept of compatible operators. You will also learn about the Schrödinger and Heisenberg pictures of quantum mechanics and the coherent and squeezed states of the harmonic oscillator. The course concludes with two state systems and their applications to NMR and masers.




This is the second of three courses offering a sophisticated view of quantum mechanics and its proper mathematical foundation.

Part 1: Wave Mechanics

Part 2: Quantum Dynamics

Part 3: Entanglement and Angular Momentum

To understand the material in this course you should have taken Mastering Quantum Mechanics Part 1: Wave Mechanics.
