Problems

You may collaborate with up to two other students of similar ability and submit a single joint homework with the names of all collaborators on it.

There will be two deadlines for each homework. The teaching assistant will give comments on your first submission to help you improve it for your second submission. Your grade will be based on a combination of your first and second submissions.

  1. Linear operators and eigenspaces, answers
  2. Quantities and values, answers
  3. Commutation relations and operations, answers
  4. Angular momentum, answers
  5. Maxwell's equations, answers

Exam

The exam will be open book and open time (up to 12 hours). It will start at 10am on Saturday 14th June in Creative 201.
