Applied Quantum and Statistical Physics: Course Description
This OpenCourseWare from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology focuses on providing students with an introduction to applied quantum and statistical physics, emphasizing the fields' experimental and theoretical foundations. 'Applied Quantum and Statistical Physics' is a graduatelevel course intended for students interested in Physics, Computer Science and related fields. This course focuses on analysis of quantum theories, including Schrodinger's equation as it applies to free particles and the FermiDirac, BoseEinstein and Boltzmann distribution functions. Students will also study electron and atomic force microscopes to learn how they apply quantum theory to realworld applications. MIT Professor Terry Orlando teaches this free course.
Study materials, including problem sets and study sheets are offered for free online. Also available are downloadable exams and quizzes. If you are interested in taking this free course, visit the quantum and statistical physics course page.
