Additional Handouts

Some topics that are of great importance to the study of quantum physics are often not included in the quantum mechanics or modern physics texts used in the classroom. Rather than devote full lectures to these topics, we have written handouts designed to help the students work through these topics. (Note that grayed out text indicates links that will be included on the final version but are not included in the demonstration version of the CD.)

Complex Variables

Following a brief overview of the algebra of real numbers, students are introduced to complex variables.

Linear Algebra

This handout focuses on specific skills in linear algebra that not all students have seen in their mathematics classes.

Dirac Notation

Though it can simplify the linear algebra, the Dirac notation is rarely encountered by students before this course. This handout serves to introduce the mathematics to the students.
