Text: I will be drawing material for the lectures from a number of texts including F. Schwabl, Quantum Mechanics, Springer and P. J. E. Peebles, Quantum Mechanics, Princeton University Press. You're encouraged to get a copy of Schwabl as when I run out of time, I will point at the appropriate section of Schwabl for reading.
Homework: Assigned via the course web site on Thursday or Friday. Due the following Thursday in the department office (208) by 4:30pm, returned the next Thursday. 50% of grade. Collaboration encouraged (but not copying!). Late homework may receive only half or none of the grade depending on how late it is and how it fits into the grading schedule!
Final: 50% of grade.
The homework assignments will be available for downloading. They will be pdf documents.
