Skills to be acquired in this module
The students will gain knowledge of the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics and their application to the modelling of the equilibrium structure of different atomic, molecular and solid state material systems. The course will enhance their competence to understand and apply basic theoretical concepts in quantum mechanics. The students will learn how to rationalize quantum effects and wave phenomena in a variety of material systems and will become acquainted with strategies how to explain the equilibrium steady-state structure of different types of matter. The students will also be introduced into the nonequilibrium dynamics of selected quantum systems.
