Quantum Mechanics: 1D Scattering and Central Potentials (edX)
Learn about scattering in one dimensional potentials, angular momentum, central potentials, and the hydrogen atom. In this quantum physics course you will learn the basic concepts of scattering – phase-shifts, time delays, Levinson’s theorem, and resonances – in the simple context of one-dimensional problems. We then turn to the study of angular momentum and the motion of particles in three-dimensional central potentials. We learn about the radial equation and study the case of the hydrogen atom in detail.

This is the final course in a series which includes:

Quantum Mechanics: Wavefunctions, Operators, and Expectation Values


Quantum Mechanics: Quantum Physics in 1D Potentials

Quantum Mechanics: 1D Scattering and Central Potentials

The series is based on the MIT 8.04: Quantum Mechanics I. At MIT, 8.04 is the first of a three-course sequence in Quantum Mechanics, a cornerstone in the education of physics majors that prepares them for advanced and specialized studies in any field related to quantum physics.

After completing the 8.04x series, you will be ready to tackle the Mastering Quantum Mechanics course series on edX, which will be available in Spring 2018.




What you'll learn

- Basics of quantum scattering in one dimension.

- Phase-shifts, time delay, Levinson’s theorem, and resonances.
