Practical Quantum Mechanics: Modern Tools and Applications

Efstratios Manousakis


The book contains lectures notes for a graduate two-semester course in quantum mechanics. It differs from other quantum mechanics textbooks as various parts of the book are inspired by rather recent advances in various areas of physics. For example, the book begins by putting the Schrödinger equation on a spatial discrete lattice, inspired by Hamiltonian lattice gauge theories (HLGT). The book also discusses the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics and emphasize the adiabatic time evolution in the case of a time-dependent Hamiltonian. As an example of how to use symmetry in quantum m ... More

Keywords: Schrödinger equation, spatial discrete lattice, Hamiltonian lattice gauge theories, HLGT, symmetry, one-dimensional periodic potentials, Hartree–Fock approximation, electron–electron correlations, Hubbard model, Hamiltonian quantization
