Together, this course and its predecessor, 8.05: Quantum Physics II, cover quantum physics with applications drawn from modern physics. Topics in this course include units, time-independent approximation methods, the structure of one- and two-electron atoms, charged particles in a magnetic field, scattering, and time-dependent perturbation theory. In this second term, students are required to research and write a paper on a topic related to the content of 8.05 and 8.06.

This course is the second course of the quantum field theory trimester sequence beginning with Relativistic Quantum Field Theory I (8.323) and ending with Relativistic Quantum Field Theory III (8.325). It develops in depth some of the topics discussed in 8.323 and introduces some advanced material. Topics include functional path integrals, renormalization and renormalization groups, quantization of nonabelian gauge theories, BRST symmetry, renormalization and symmetry breaking, critical exponents and scalar field theory, and perturbation theory anomalies.

Quantum Information Processing aims at harnessing quantum physics to conceive and build devices that could dramatically exceed the capabilities of today's "classical" computation and communciation systems. In this course, we will introduce the basic concepts of this rapidly developing field. Study Goals: To understand the operation, potential, and limitations of the main theoretical results (algorithms, error correction, communication) To be able to use the formalism of quantum information (unitary matrices, Hermitian matrices, state vectors, density matrices, etc) To obtain an overview of the experimental state of the art, and an appreciation of future prospects..

Probability has applications in classical physics, but it plays a more essential role in quantum physics. We can take examples from quantum mechanics without raising the mathematical or computational level appreciably, but for those with no previous knowledge of the subject, the brief outline given below may not be adequate.
