(including lecture notes, problem
sets and hw solutions)

**features**Quantum mechnics encompasses virtually all of modern physics. We will frequently discuss topics of current interest, emphasizing recent experiments that test quantum mechanics. Why else would anyone believe such a kooky theory?-
**grading:**The grades will be an average of problem sets, class and problem session participation (see the recapitulation) , two tests, and a final.-
**problems session:**F 1200-1250 Particiption is strongly encouraged. - The recapitualtion: At the start of each class I will pick a student to summarize (without notes) the previous lecture. If you have missed the previous class, you will be expected to have reviewed the lecture notes.
