Summary: ASTR 5110 INTERNAL PROCESSES 1
http://jilawww.colorado.edu/~pja/astr5110/
TIME & PLACE: Monday / Wednesday / Friday at 10:00am in Duane E126
INSTRUCTOR: Phil Armitage (pja@jilau1.colorado.edu; office JILA A909; office
phone 2-7836). There are no official `office hours' for this class I'm normally in the

Review of quantum mechanics the Schrodinger equation, operators, angular
momentum, perturbation theory
Hydrogen-like atoms and their spectroscopy
Subtleties of hydrogen spin, fine and hyperfine structure, Zeeman splitting
