Description of the course
Most parts of the course take place at Fysicum.
See the schedual .
The main literature for the course consists of:
(1) The document entitled "Hilbert spaces" found below
(2) Gunnar Ohlen: Quantum world phenomenon: theory and concepts, (University) Chapter 5-9
Gunnar Sparr and Annika Sparr: Continuous systems (Open University), Chapters H and S
An English book covering the same mathematics area and which may be of interest is
Philippe Dennery and Andre Krzywicki: Mathematics for physicists, found for example here.
Peter S. Riseborough: Mathematical methods 1, kap. 1-9. (freely availiable from the web)
- Math literature: Hilbert Spaces
- Math excercises: exercises for Hilbert spaces
- Hand-in assignments for the math part: Hand-ins for Hilbert spaces
- Suggestions for solutions to Ohlen exercises:
- part 1
- part 2
- Computer Projects:
i) Quantum dots Andrea Idini (firstname.lastname@example.org)
ii) Time-dependent Schrödinger equation Claudio Verdozzi (email@example.com)
iii) Perturbation of a hydrogen plasma Peter Samuelsson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
