PHY 342 - Quantum Mechanics

Is light a particle or a wave? What about electrons? In this course we will study the puzzling, yet highly successful, quantum theory of light and matter. We will focus on Schrödinger’s equation and its solutions for atoms, molecules, and solids.

This course is cross-listed with CHE 342  , only PHY 342 or CHE 342 may be taken for credit, not both. 3 lec.
Prerequisite(s): Concurrent (or previous) enrollment in MAT 223   is required.
