We should really have a quantum mechanics topic

Having been on this website for a while, it becomes pretty clear that this community definitely includes plenty of members (some younger than me) who probably know at least rudimentary quantum mechanics, if not quantum field theory. I've seen requests posted to create a quantum mechanics topic, but I'm not aware that it is in the making. Is this currently being worked on? If it isn't, I think that it really should be done. I'd personally find it very helpful to drill Dirac notation problems or expand an energy eigen basis on here every now and again.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

@Cole Wyeth -- just so you know, we agree. It is going to take some time and some people helping to make it a reality -- but it will happen :)

We have still not completed the Chemistry venture. Quantum Mechanics will take some time to come.

But here is what you can do:

  • Write awesome wikis about Quantum Mechanics.
  • Tell us about them on the slack #physics channel.
  • Create a slack #quantum-mechanics channel.
  • Post cool problems and notes demonstrating interesting ideas from quantum mechanics
