Course description

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


Monday 10:00 - 11:30 HS III/ Tuesday 08:00 - 09:30 HS III

The first lecture is on October 17.

Lecture notes

Short questions for repetition

Here you can find a collection of short questions for repetition. These will be discussed in the lecture on Tuesday February 7.

Exercise classes

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?
1 08:00 - 09:30 New building, ETP 0.03 Federico Tonielli
2 08:00 - 09:30 Old building, seminar room 215 Jan Schmidt
3 12:00 - 13:30 New building, ETP 0.03 Yoran Tournois
4 12:00 - 13:30 Old building, seminar room 215 Benjamin Schmiegelt
5 14:00 - 15:30 New building, ETP 0.03 Sungmin Hwang

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.


For questions about the exercises, please contact: Johan Aberg.

Additional tutorials

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.


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