Refresher Course on Quantum Mechanics

Science Academies' Refresher Course on
Quantum Mechanics 
5 – 18 May 2014
Sponsored by
Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore
Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi
The National Academy of Sciences India, Allahabad
In collaboration with
Bishop Moore College, Mavelikara, Kerala

A Refresher Course in 'Quantum Mechanics' for College/University teachers/research scholars will be held at Post Graduate and Research Department of Physics, Bishop Moore College, Mavelikara, Kerala, during 5 -18 May, 2014. The Course is primarily aimed at teachers teaching quantum mechanics at the UG/PG level although a few seats will be available for research scholars in physics. The Course will cover the basic and advanced topics of quantum mechanics, through lectures and tutorials. College/University teachers having at least a Master’s degree in Physics are particularly encouraged to apply.

Topics: Most of the topics in a standard UG/PG level course syllabus will be covered. There will be four modules:

Module 1: Formulation, Schrodinger equation, Angular momentum, H-atom;
Module 2: Scattering, Time-independent perturbations, WKB, Variational method;
Module 3: Symmetries and conservation laws, Klein Gordon and Dirac equations;
Module 4: Time dependent perturbation, Field quantization.

Resource persons:

Professors M. Lakshmanan (Professor of Eminence & DST Ramanna Fellow, Centre for Nonlinear Dynamics  Bharathidasan University ,Tiruchirapalli), HS Mani (Chennai Mathematical Institute), G. Rajasekaran (The Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Chennai Mathematical Institute) and Govind Krishnaswami (Chennai Mathematical Institute).
