(or equivalent)

The individual and in depth (literature) study of a theme related but separate from the themes presented during the lecture requires different compentences compared to the ones which are tested during the oral exam. Therefore the students must give a presentation during the semester about a theme based on their study of the literature. A list of possible themes and corresponding literature will be provided during the lecture.
The student presentation is a mandatory "pass/fail" element of the course and must be passed separately from the oral exam. If the presentation fails it will not be possible to pass the final exam. A renewed presentation is not required in case the oral exam has to be repeated.

LernzielEs handelt sich um eine erste Grundvorlesung in Quantenmechanik. Die Vorlesung beginnt mit einem Überblick über die grundlegenden Konzepte der Quantenmechanik und führt den mathematischen Formalismus ein. Im Folgenden werden die Postulate und Theoreme der Quantenmechanik im Kontext der experimentellen und rechnerischen Ermittlung von physikalischen Grössen diskutiert. Die Vorlesung vermittelt die notwendigen Werkzeuge für das Verständnis der elementaren Quantenphänomene in Atomen und Molekülen.
