Math 272 Spring 2020

Vector fields, partial differentiation, cylindrical and spherical coordinates, multiple integrals, line integrals, the Wave and the Schrödinger equations, separation of variables method. Inner Product Spaces. Fourier Series.

I am currently teaching the Math 271/272 sequence at Colorado State University. This semester marked the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Classes were greatly affected by the switch to an online format. Changes were made to the syllabus in order to accomodate students.


The project for this class was to find analytical solutions to the Schrödinger equation for a central Coloumb potential. In other words, we found explicit states for electrons in a hydrogen atom.
