Quantum mechanics is a fundamental branch of physics and is a crucial step toward understanding nature at an atomic scale. Despite the difficulty, quantum mechanics has been a source of amusement and amazement both to the novice and the experienced physicist. It has also been a source of confusion and misconceptions; the bulk of pop-science literatures testifies in support, to many engineers, chemists, and philosophers.
Since it is almost impossible to grasp the essence of quantum mechanics without understanding of classical physics, Community of Physics has undertaken the risk to offer the laymen a flavor of that Tao which bridges the gap between classical physics and quantum mechanics. This summer, Community of Physics brings you the “1st Workshop on Quantum Mechanics: Schrödinger’s Wit”.
In this upcoming workshop, we will shortly review the classical theories prior to exploring the Schrödinger equation, potential well, and tunneling effects. Later, we’ll be learning the necessary algebra, the current language of quantum mechanics. We’ll also see how quantum mechanics works by applying it to the simplest atom and deriving the quantum numbers. We’ll conclude the workshop with further instructions for the participants to study quantum mechanics. A detailed topic list is uploader to the event page
Any undergraduate student from any major can apply to participate in this workshop. However, we expect a strong statement of purpose (SOP) in the application.
The registration fee for this workshop is BDT 1200.
However, the selection process for the workshop is need-blind. The applicant may request for a partial or full waiver (scholarship) upon selection. Community of Physics will pay the fee (or a portion of it) on behalf of the selected applicant if the request for their scholarship is accepted.
No, this is an in-person workshop.
The “1st Workshop on starts on June 05, 2022, at 9:00 am. This is a four days long workshop.
Submit your application to join “1st Workshop on Quantum Mechanics” through the “Application Form” below. If selected, we will provide you the further instructions.
Keep an eye on the Facebook event page of “1st Workshop on Quantum Mechanics”. We will post the lists of selected applicants there periodically.
The “Application Portal for 1st Workshop on Quantum Mechanics” closes on Tuesday, May 31, 2022. Hurry up and submit your application before it’s too late.
