A treatment of the formal theory which embodies the present day physicist’s understanding of atomic and sub-atomic systems. The course deals mainly with the Schroedinger representation and emphasizes applications to atomic phenomena. The nature of Hilbert space, the role of operators in the theory of eigenvalue equations, and time-dependent perturbation theory are among the topics treated.
