Content of the Course

The course aims to create a common knowledge base of the most important basic concepts in quantum mechanics for students joining the Munich QST Master Program in the fall of 2023. Participation is optional. In the morning, we start with lecture sessions, which include small active parts. The lectures are supplemented by tutorials with extended exercises and questions sessions in the late morning.

The course offers a refresher on the following topics:

  • Basic mathematical description
  • Postulates of QM / Bra-Ket notation
  • Two-level systems / Bloch sphere / spin-1/2 in a magnetic field
  • Multi-qubit states and tensor products
  • Density matrices
  • Harmonic oscillator

Most lecturers in the QST Master program will assume that you know this material very well. Therefore, if you feel that refreshing some of these topics would be helpful, we strongly recommend to participate.

Availability of the course material

The course material will be made available via Moodle during the course. Participants can register in Moodle via their „Kennung/ID“. To do so, please choose the „self enrollment“ option and use the enrollment key that was distributed via e-mail.
