This lecture covers more advanced aspects of quantum mechanics, where the topics include:

- Principles of quantum mechanics
- Second quantization
- Bosonic systems
- Quantum theory of light
- Relativistic quantum mechanics
- Scattering theory

The first lecture is on October 17.

The exercise classes will take place on Wednesdays.

The first exercise class will be on Wednesday October 26.

Distribution to the groups can be found here (updated: 09.11.2016).

Group | When? | Where? | Who? |

Exercises will be issued on mondays after the lecture, and the solutions should be handed in the following Monday before the lecture. There are homework boxes next to the entrance to the department of theoretical physics in the old building. The exercises will be corrected, and will be discussed in the exercise classes on the following Wednesday.

The exercises should be handed in on an individual basis. One cannot hand in in groups.

The additional voluntary tutorial is offered every Thursday 14:00-15:30 in HSIII (old building) by Anirudh Gundhi. This does not follow any predetermined programm but is guided by questions you have concerning the material of the course or quantum mechanics in general. You can also contact the tutor Anirudh Gundhi if you have any requests for particular topics that you like to be discussed.

**Exam:**on March 2, 2017, 14.30 - 17.30 in HSI**Second exam**on April 10, 2017, 13.00 - 16.00 in HSIII

To be admitted to the exam one has to have gathered at least 50% of the points from the problem sheets.
