These notes originate from my half of our second-year quantum physics module. I no longer teach this module, so local students may wish to consult John Gough's and Edwin Flikkema's notes in the first instance. However, I like to think these pages may be helpful in perhaps giving another angle on the same material, so I've decided to leave them online.

- Roadmap of fundamental concepts of quantum physics
- Maths revision: polar coordinates
- Solving the Schrödinger equation for the hydrogen atom
- Hydrogen spectroscopy
- The shape of wave functions
- Putting a few atoms together: molecules
- Adding some realism: perturbation theory
- Putting a lot of atoms together: solids
- Bosons, Fermions, and spin
- To spin or not to spin - the Stern-Gerlach experiment

The book *Introduction to Quantum Physics*
by AP French and EF Taylor is a bit more than it claims to
be; it will get you through all of this lecture and a good bit further. Spin is covered in an excellent
way in the introductory chapter of JJ Sakurai's *Modern Quantum Mechanics*.
