Quantum physics I

Introduction to the concepts, methods and consequences of quantum physics.

Quantum physics II

The aim of this course is to introduce the concepts, methods and consequences of quantum physics. In particular, the angular momentum, perturbation theory, many-particle systems, quantum correlations (entanglement), open quantum systems, symmetries and in...

Quantum physics IV

Introduction to the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics. Derivation of the perturbation expansion of Green's functions in terms of Feynman diagrams. Several applications will be presented, including non-perturbative effects, such as tunneling a...

Advanced Topics in Quantum Sciences and Technologies

This course provides an in-depth treatment of the latest experimental and theoretical topics in quantum sciences and technologies, with a focus on quantum optics, cold atoms, and the theory of quantum measurements and open dissipative quantum systems.
