The aim of the course is to advance the students' understanding of non-relativistic and relativistic quantum mechanics. The course is planned as a continuation of "Quantum Mechanics" and will give the necessary background for studies in statistical quantum mechanics, nuclear and particle physics, and quantum field theory. After having taken Advanced Quantum Mechanics the student will have acquired the following skills:
- A working knowledge of non-relativistic and relativistic quantum mechanics including time-dependent perturbation theory, scattering theory, relativistic wave equations, and second quantization.
- The ability to understand concepts and to perform calculations of scattering of particles.
- The ability to critically understand and evaluate modern research utilizing quantum theory in condensed matter, nuclear and particle physics.
