Introduction to Atmospheric Sciences
The atmospheric air and water on the Earth surface are our familiar fluids due to their flows makeing much effects on our dailylife at all times.Fluid Mechanics is a scientific subject evidently exploring the law of the macroscopical motion of this kind of Newtonian fluid. The term fluid includes both gases and liquids. The methods and techniques in fluid mechanics are widely applied to deal with many problems in biofluid, environmental fluid, geophysical fluid and so on. This course is to introduce the terminology and techniques required in the study of the flows of fluids. The goal is to help students apply the universal physical principles such as conservation of mass, momentum and energy to understand the fundamental equations which govern most of the flow of fluids.

The purpose of this course is to guide students into the fascinating microscopic scales world of quantum physics. We will learn the basic physical principles and basic mathematical tools of non-relativistic quantum mechanics, and this simple basic theory is applied to a variety of interesting physical phenomena. The course content includes: kets and bras from Dirac, Schrodinger equation of motion, the Heisenberg equation of motion, mechanical observables and representation transformation, collapse of measurement and uncertainty principle. Here, we also will learn to solve one-dimensional potential well, harmonic oscillator, hydrogen atom and two-level system, time-independent perturbation theory, variational method, time-dependent perturbation theory.
Methods of Mathematical Physics
"This course is set for the students with physics major of the School of Physics, but also can be reference for students with other physics class of majors. On the basis of Calculus (calculus of one variable and several variables, power series and Fourier series, ordinary differential equations, vector analysis, linear algebra), this course focuses on the basic properties of analytic functions and its applications, including the Γ function, integral transform and δ function, and on preparing for the relevant physics theory courses.
With analytic mechanics, many topics of kinematics and dynamics of mechanical systems are introduced. The course Mainly includes: constraints of motion, generalized coordinates, degrees of freedom, principle of virtual work. For fixed-point motion of rigid body, the Euler angles and Euler Equations of kinematics are introduced; and more, parallel planar motion, fixed-axis motion and general motion of rigid bodies are also presented. The equations of motion in non-inertial reference frame and their application are discussed. Lagrangian and Lagrange equations are introduced, and as their applications, central force motions and small oscillations for multi-degrees of freedom mechanical systems are discussed. Center of mass and reference frame of center of mass for many particle systems are presented. Dynamical laws of the particle groups are discussed, and the laws are used to solve mechanical problems. For rigid body dynamics, the inertia tensor and Euler dynamical equation are introduced. From the Lagrange equations of motion, we deduce the canonical equations of motions, the conservations of some mechanical quantities of mechanical systems are discussed. Finally, we discuss the Poisson brackets and Hamilton`s principle and Hamilton-Jacobi equation.
