Mechanics, Electrodynamics and Optics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering I-III. These courses are mandatory prerequisites
The students will learn the foundations of quantum structure of matter from a theoretical point of view. At the end of the course, they will be able to treat basic quantum mechanical problems related to matter in atomic, molecular, and crystalline form. They will learn the key theoretical methods that allow one to solve these problems exactly whenever possible, or approximately when the complexity of the many-body system impose it. The students will gain the ability to study physical phenomena with concrete technological implications such as, for example, light-matter interaction. Exercises, tutorials, and homework and allow the students to consolidate the knowledge acquired during the lectures and to achieve the ability to independently treat the above-mentioned problems.
