Lecture: Advanced Quantum Mechanics (MSc)

Lecturer: David Gross. Exercises: Johan Aberg. Time and venue: Mondays 10am, Tuesdays 8am HS III.


  • Until late March, KLIPS listed Thursdays (wrong), not Tuesdays (right) for the second lecture slot.
  • If you want to participate in the lecture as a Ba student, just show up during the first date. You do not need to formally sign up at this point.

Course description

This lecture covers more advanced aspects of quantum mechanics. Topics include:

  • Many-body quantum mechanics
  • Second quantization
  • Quantum theory of light
  • Relativistic quantum mechanics
  • Scattering theory
  • Some topics from quantum information theory and the application of group theory


Exercise classes

The idea is that you should register for an exrcise class via Klips. It looks like Klips is open now for registrations, but to be honest I am not entirely sure. (Sorry, but I never really understand Klips.)

The exercise classes all take place on Wednesdays.

Exercise Sheets

The exercises can be handed in by groups of at most three people.



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


For admission to the exam, one has to have gathered at lest 50% of the points from the exercise sheets.
