PH5100 Quantum Mechanics I

This is the course that I taught during Fall 2019. The class consisted of students from the first-year of the two-year M.Sc. program in Physics as well as the third-year of the five-year dual degree program in Physics at IIT Madras.

I followed a strict 3 lectures + 1 tutorial session. I ended up creating 14 problem sets in all.

Problem Sets

Problem Set 1 || Problem Set 2 || Problem Set 3 || Problem Set 4 || Problem Set 5 ||
Problem Set 6 || Problem Set 7 | Problem Set 8 || Problem Set 9 || Problem Set 10 ||
Problem Set 11 || Problem Set 12 || Problem Set 13 || Problem Set 14 ||
