課程概述 Course Description

本課程為英語授課,請詳英文簡介。
Physics is the science of change and of measurement. Change is seen against the changeless and measurement is the process of comparing a property to a well defined and agreed upon referent. Quantum mechanics, as a branch of physics, is primarily a theory of transformations that realize the changes of quantum states and the operators of quantum mechanics are the generators of those transformations. The formulation of the physical laws uses the mathematics of transformations and the important properties appear as the invariants or nearly invariants of the transformations. The issue of measurement lies at the heart of interpretation of quantum theory. In a quantum measurement, the error in an observable and the disturbance in its canonically conjugate observable caused by the measurement, together with the quantum fluctuations, are related and have been formulated as Kennard-Robertson's, Heisenberg's, Schrodinger's, and Ozawa's inequalities. This course embraces the following main topics: Mathematical foundation of quantum mechanics: quantum states and Hilbert spaces, observables and operators, commutation relations and Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, pure and mixed states, density operator; Quantum dynamics: time evolution and the Schrodinger equation, Schrodinger and Heisenberg pictures, interaction or Dirac picture, quantization of harmonic oscillator, potential and gauge transformation; Theory of angular momentum: rotation and angular momentum operator, spin and SU(2) group, orbital angular momentum, solution of the hydrogen atom, addition of angular momenta and Clebsch-Gordan coefficients, tensor operators and Wigner-Eckart theorem; Symmetry in quantum mechanics: conservation laws and degeneracies, parity, time-reversal symmetry.
