AbstractIntroduction to many-particle quantum mechanics and quantum statistics. Basic concepts: symmetrised many-body wave functions for fermions and bosons, the Pauli principle, Bose- and Fermi-statistic and second quantisation. Applications include the description of atoms, and the interaction between radiation and matter.
ObjectiveIntroduction to many-particle quantum mechanics and quantum statistics. In particular basic concepts such as symmetrised many-body wave functions for fermions and bosons, the Pauli principle, Bose- and Fermi-statistics and second quantisation will be discussed. Applications include
the description of atoms, and the interaction between radiation and matter.
ContentThe description of identical particles leads us to the
introduction of symmetrised wave functions for fermions
and bosons. We discuss simple few-body problems and
proceed with a systematic description of fermionic many
body problems in terms of second quantisation.
We also discuss basic concepts of quantum statistics.
Applications include the description of
atoms, and the interaction between radiation and matter.
