First in a sequence with PHYS425 that provides introduction to basic principles and applications of quantum mechanics. Emphasis on formalism of quantum mechanics. Schroedinger equation is solved for simple cases such as free-particle motion, simple harmonic oscillator and hydrogen atom, with a basic treatment of angular momentum. Topic of identical particles also considered.
