Learning objectives

After this course the student will have a robust knowledge of quantum physics, enabling him/her to understand every sector of today physics


Some previous knowledge of quantum physics is expected for proper understanding of this set of lectures

Course unit content

 In the past 40 years it was possible to perform experiments that  had been considered  merely imaginary experiments, by the founders of quantum physics .<br />
Then the traditional way to teach quantum mechanics was reconsidered, some subjects and formalisms previously considered specialized topics are noe considered essential part of the course.<br />
New books have been written according to the shift  of topics and formalism.<br />
Our course will follow the pattern of these new books.
