References

The course outline is a superposition of several books. 1. Part (1, 2) is based on Chapter 1 of P. A. M. Dirac, Principles of Quantum Mechanics, Oxford University Press Also look at Chapter 1 in the following books: Harry J. Lipkin, Quantum Mechanics: New approaches to selected topics, Dover Press. V. Scarani, Six quantum Pieces, World Scientific Dirac book is a bit complicated. Hence, I do not advise any of you to read it now. 2. Part (3, 4, 5) is based on Feynman Lectures on Physics Vol: 3 3. Part (6-9) looks at solutions of Schroedinger equation. All standard textbooks of quantum mechanics can be used as a reference. In particular a. J. J. Sakurai, Modern Quantum Mechanics, Addison-Wesley b. C. Cohen-Tannoudji, Bernard Diu and Frank Lole, Quantum Mechanics Vol: 1. Wiley Interscience c. J. S. Townsend, A Modern Approach to Quantum Mechanics, University Science Books d. Gennaro Auletta & Mauro Fortunato & Giorgio Parisi, Quantum Mechanics, Cambridge University Press 4. Book by W. Greiner on Quantum Mechanics has detailed calculations. I spotted few errors, hence, be careful of typographical errors!

Assignment guidelines

1. One assignment every 4 lectures. Return date will be mentioned on the assignment. Any deadline extension should be told the next day of receiving the assignment. 2. Please make sure that you do the assignment by yourself. You are free to consult your classmates, seniors/Ph.D. students and make sure you understand the concept. To know whether you have indeed done the assignment, time to time I will ask questions to some of you. Hence, do not try to fool yourself by copying assignments from others. 3. Do not take assignments to other faculties and ask them to solve for you. Faculties have solved assignments in their student times! It is your time to solve the assignments. 4. There will be surprise test during the class hour.

Course Schedule

1. Upto First mid-semester exam: Part 1 - 4 2. Between I and II mid-sem exam: Part 5 - 7 3. Between II mid-sem and Final exam: Part 8-10

We can fix a suitable time convenient for you and me. My suggestion is Thursday between 12:30 - 13:30 hrs (just after the Physics meeting).

Short presentations

All physics major and Int. Ph.D. students are expected to give short presentations on the following topics. Two students can join and give a single presentation. We expect to start the presentations after the first mid-semester. List of topics are given below: 1. Scanning Tunneling Microscope: a. Principle b. Working 2. Josephson Junction a. Principle b. Working 3. Chandrasekhar Mass limit 4. Coherent states 5. Squeezed states 6. Working of atomic clocks 7. Fluctuations and random number generator 8. Tunneling and ultraprecise thermometers 9. P-N junction
