Annotation -
Quantum mechanics has a fundamental importance in the study of material fields. It allows to understand the behavior of very small objects ranging from from nanostructures to single atoms and even subatomic objects. It represents a way to formulate laws describing the phenomena in materials and apply them to the understanding of new ones. The course focuses on understanding the apparatus of quantum mechanics and its application in the study of fundamental problems of microcosm.
