Quantum Mechanics I - PHYS431

The aim of the course is to present in more details some topics in quantum mechanics. The course will give the students some instruments for the explicit solutions of quantum mechanical problems. The objective of the course is to help you learn how to apply quantum mechanical ideas to the solution of physical problems. The lectures will develop the methods of quantum mechanics systematically, and illustrate their application with numerous examples and applications to real problems.


Leading to a Better Understanding of the Particle-in-a-Quantum-Corral Model
Agcali, Rahime Yagmur; Atik, Bahar; Bilgen, Ecenaz; Karli, Berfu; Danışman, Mehmet Fatih (2019-01-01)
Understanding the concepts of quantum mechanics has always been a challenge for undergraduate students. This is especially so because many of the introductory (analytically solvable) systems and problems discussed in textbooks are seemingly abstract. Using approximate experimental demonstrations of such systems and problems have been shown to be very helpful in teaching and illustrating the basic concepts of quantum mechanics. One such system is the particle-inside-a-ring system, whose experimental demonstr...
Discrete symmetries in quantum theory
Taşdan, İsmail Ufuk; Pak, Namık Kemal; Department of Physics (2015)
In this thesis, one of the most central problems of modern physics, namely the discrete symmetries, is discussed from various perspectives ranging from classical mechanics to relativistic quantum theory. The discrete symmetries, namely charge conjugation (C), parity (P), time reversal (T), which are connected by the so-called CPT Theorem are studied in detail. The anti-particles with a view to matter-anti-matter symmetry is also addressed and the anti-unitarity nature of the time reversal, as well as the CP...
Turkish New High School Physics Curriculum Teachers Views and Needs
Balta, Nuri; Eryılmaz, Ali (2011-01-01)
The aim of this study is to determine the physics teacher’s views about changes made to physics curriculum and in-service training needs about new topics added. To achieve this purpose, a survey is conducted via Internet. A questionnaire of 11 Likert-type items was used as a data collection tool. Data supplied by the participants were cleaned and finally views of 100 teachers were taken into account. The analysis of the results demonstrated that physics teacher’s attitudes toward the changes are positive. A...
Does technology management research diverge or converge in developing and developed countries?
ÇETİNDAMAR KOZANOĞLU, DİLEK; Wasti Pamuksuz, Syeda Nazlı; ANSAL, HACER; Beyhan, B. (2009-01-01)
The main purpose of this paper is to understand whether the research of developing and developed countries in the technology management (TM) field converge or diverge in terms of topics, approaches, research focus, and methods. International trends are explored based on the comparison of developed and developing countries' academia, conducted through a content analysis of the main TM journals over the period of 1995-2005. The analysis of a random sample of 325 articles indicates a clear differentiation of m...
Cognitive aspects of conceptual modeling diagrams : an experimental study
Kılıç, Özkan; Say, Bilge; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2007)
This thesis is about diagrammatic reasoning and error-finding in conceptual modeling diagrams. Specifically, the differences of the cognitive strategies and behaviors of notation-familiar participants versus domain-familiar participants working on conceptual modeling diagrams are inspected. The domain-familiar participants are experienced in the topic being represented, but they do not have any formal training in software development representations. On the other hand, the notation-familiar participants are...
