This hands-on class is intended to teach things you need to participate in real-life research, and also will help you with studying advanced quantum mechanics. You will learn to use Mathematica to simulate and visualize quantum physics. You will discover things that are often missed even in advanced quantum mechanics classes. On examples, you will learn to solve problems of actual current interest and get ready for research in condensed-matter physics, nano electronics, and quantum computation.
