Graduate Quantum Mechanics Lectures

Michael Fowler, UVa.

These notes cover the essential core topics of a standard graduate quantum mechanics course. The main text used for the class was Shankar, with Sakurai as a secondary text. I also adapted material from Landau, Baym and Messiah. The first lectures here review undergraduate quantum and modern physics as a reminder, this optional material was only covered briefly in class. Towards the end of the course, I added lectures on the Dirac equation, the Berry phase and graphene, not included here. I may upload them later.
