Lecture Notes & Problem Sets

The lecture notes and problem sets of all the courses are available to students enrolled in any one of them. If you click on any one of the links below, you will be prompted for an user ID and a password. Your user ID is your family name (in lower case letters) and your password is your student ID number (without spaces or hyphens). If it doesn't work, it probably means that there is another student with the same family name as your's. Try adding the initials of your first and middle names to your family name as the user ID. If that doesn't work, please go see Tatsu Takeuchi.

Undergraduate students taking Foundations of Quantum & Solid State (3455) or Introductory Quantum Mechanics (4455/6) are encouraged to study the more advanced material on their own, while graduate students taking Quantum Mechanics (5455/6) and Advanced Quantum Theory (6455/6) are encouraged to review the more introductory material to strengthen their understanding of the basics.

Students who are not taking any of these courses but still want copies of the lecture notes should talk to the instructor of each course.


Suggested Reading

In addition to the regular textbook for your course, I recommend the following books to further deepen your appreciation (but perhaps not necessarily your understanding) of the subject. - Tatsu Takeuchi.
