Short course annotation in Lithuanian

Dalyko tikslas – supažindinti studentus su pagrindinėmis kvantinės mechanikos idėjomis naudojant kvantinių reiškinių vizualizacijos priemones. Kompiuterių laboratorijoje studentai, naudodamiesi specialia programine įranga studijuoja kvantinius reiškinius, kaitaliodami parametrus ir analizuodami gautus problem sprendimus. Kurso temos parinktos taip, kad studentai susipažintų su pagrindinėmis kvantinės mechanikos koncepcijomis ir įsisavintų jos metodų taikymus aprašant kvantines daleles ir sistemas.

Short course annotation in English

The course presents the principal ideas of quantum mechanics as a tool applying visualization of quantum phenomena. Computer-generated animations are used to introduce, motivate and illustrate the basic concepts of quantum mechanics. In the computer laboratory students solve quantum-mechanical problems by using the program devoted for these problems solution. Students can examine the results, change some parameters in their problems and analyze the answers given by the computer. The topics of the course are selected to achieve the following objectives: to introduce and explain the basic concepts of quantum mechanics, to exemplify these concepts by visualization through computer graphics, and to develop a correct understanding of quantum mechanics.

Prerequisites for entering the course

Physics 1, Calculus 1.

Course aim

The aim of the course is to introduce the basic concepts of quantum mechanics and develop experience solving corresponding problems.

Content (topics)

 1. Light waves and photons.
 2. De Broglie waves, wave packets, probablistic interpretation.
 3. The Schroedinger equation.
 4. One-dimensional quantum mechanics.
 5. Symmetries of wave-functions, statistics.
 6. Problems of three-dimensional quantum mechanics.
 7. Bound states in different potentials, the Hydrogen atom.

Practical work (contents):

Probability waves of matter. Tunnel effect, excitation and decay of metastable states. Spectra of a deep quantum well, harmonic oscillator potential, periodic potentials. Band spectra. Indistinguishable particles, the two-particle wave-function. Angular momentum, spherical functions. Solutions of three-dimensional Schroedinger equation. Bound states and spectra of atoms.

Distribution of workload for students (contact and independent work hours)

Lectures – 30 hours, laboratory work in computer class – 30 hours, individual work – 56 hours.

Structure of cumulative score and value of its constituent parts
