Catherine Therese J. Quiñones The virial theorem is a general theorem relating the potential energy (V) and the kinetic energy (T) in a bound system. A simple physical example is a small object orbiting around another object bound by a force as in the case of a hydrogen atom. The average kinetic energy and potential […]

### Perturbation Theory: Quantum Oscillator Problem

Monday, April 20th, 2009by ANCELIE C. ROSALES In quantum mechanics, the perturbation theory is a very important mathematical tool which is used to approximate physical quantities that describe complicated quantum systems based on our knowledge on the simpler ones. It tells us how to correct the solutions to the unperturbed or undisturbed problem to approximately account for the […]

### The Birth of Quantum Mechanics

Thursday, January 15th, 2009” The Heisenberg-Bohr concepts leave us all breathless, and have made a deep impression on all theoretically oriented people.” -Albert Einstein, 1926 The period 1905 to 1925 was a great time for the world’s leading physicists in the race to understand the quantum nature of matter. To explain so many curious and undigestible phenomena about radiation, […]
