ES 170: Engineering Quantum Mechanics

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2018

As a first course in quantum mechanics, tailored for engineering, applied mathematics and computer science students, this course will teach concepts needed to engineer a quantum world, to understand quantum mechanical properties of materials and build an intuition for quantum information science. The course will be a hybrid of lectures on theory, state-of-the-art computational methods ('theory-lab') in quantum simulations and we will use IBM Q Experience, an open access quantum computer. Topics will include periodic potentials and the tight-binding approach, quantizing vibrations in...
