Description:

This web site consists of lecture notes in classical and quantum mechanical waves. The notes include the basics of classical waves including connections to mechanical oscillators, wave packets, and acoustic and electromagnetic waves. The final section outlines the key concepts of the quantum mechanical wave equation including probability and current, free and bound states, time dependent perturbation theory, and radiation. Visual Python and Maple animations are included for download.
