Description

Topics include: The Quantum Theory of Spin: representing the spin state of a particle by a spinor, representing spin, a quantum mechanical observable, by spin matrices, admitting the quantum indeterminacy in predictions of measured values of spin components, making probabilistic predictions of measured values of spin components, letting spin states evolve in a magnetic field, review; Quantum Mechanical Postulates for Bound systems: Beyond spin: the mathematics of matrix mechanics; The matrix description of a quantum mechanical particle in a potential well: the simple harmonic oscillator, a general formalism for both Schrodinger and matrix quantum mechanics, the postulates of quantum mechanics for bound systems; Topics also include: Uncertainty relations and the commutation of operators: applications of the general formalism, the remaining problem of position and momentuml; The Postulates of Elementary Quantum Mechanics: extracting information from the position operator, extracting from the momentum operator, using the spectrum and the eigenfunctions - the single particle in a finite square well potential, and the postulates of elementary quantum mechanics - our final version.show more
