Course 2 of Statistical Thermodynamics presents an introduction to quantum mechanics at a level appropriate for those with mechanical or aerospace engineering backgrounds. Using a postulatory approach that describes the steps to follow, the Schrodinger wave equation is derived and simple solutions obtained that illustrate atomic and molecular structural behavior. More realistic behavior is also explored along with modern quantum chemistry numerical solution methods for solving the wave equation.

TOP REVIEWS FROM QUANTUM MECHANICS
I love this topic and I really enjoyed the lessons, I have learned so much. Thanks
A good course with a good syllabus. There are minor errors. I also request the instructor to perform elaborate simplifications to complicated equations present in the slides.
The Professor successfully presented the concise introduction to the course theme. Link to useful suggested resources could be helpful for the learners.
Amazing tutorial and presentations. Got a lot of information and enriched my knowledge in quantum mechanics.
My sincere gratitude to Mr. John W. Daily for guiding me through this course.
