**Grading**

Final exam | 20% |

Homeworks | 80% |

This is a continuation of the Introduction to Quantum Mechanics course. After a brief review, starting with the three-dimensional operator, we will study the topics:

- Spin and addition of angular momentum
- Identical particles
- Perturbation theory
- ????

This course will be conducted as a semi-independent study. Class time will consist of a mixture of informal lecture and working as a group on homework problems.

The main purpose of the final exam in this course is to see whether
you took good class notes and that you understand them.
You may use your class notes and *your* homework solutions
while taking the exam.
