On the final exam you may bring:

Approved calculator, D.J. Griffiths: “Introduction to Quantum Mechanics”, the printed notes: “Time evolution of states in quantum mechanics”, “Symmetry and degeneracy” and “WKB connection formulae”, one handwritten A4-sheet(2 pages) with your own notes, and K. Rottmann: “Matematisk formelsamling”.

For your own benefit you should bring these materials.

We have posted an optional

Problem set 12 , which is not to be handed in.

The purpose is to let you get some training in using the results of time-dependent perturbation theory applied to atoms.

The solution will be posted on Friday 21.

Language: Although the problem text is in English, you may answer the exam in either Norwegian Bokmål, Norwegian Nynorsk or English.

Problem 1:

-"measurement of the spin-x component" means "measurement of the x-component of the spin-1/2 degree of freedom".

-An ideal measurement is a measurement which only minimally disturbs the system. This does not mean that the spin state is not altered. In this problem it simply is a qualifier which lets you use postulate 6 presented in the lectures or what Griffiths calls the "Generalized statistical interpretation".
