PHYS 2320 - Modern Physics

(3)
Serves as an introduction to the fundamentals of quantum mechanics and explores many subfields that were facilitated by its formulation: nuclear, atomic, elementary particle, and condensed matter physics. In addition, the course delves into special and general theories of relativity and examines their applications in cosmology and astrophysics. Students will also consider the mathematical process of renormalization and the quest to formulate a unified model of the fundamental forces that reconciles quantum physics with general relativity. Prerequisite: PHYS 1320 . Corequisite: MATH 2310 . (3 hrs lec)
