We have developed a framework for understanding and characterizing student perspectives on the physical interpretation of quantum mechanics, and demonstrate the differential impact on student thinking of the myriad ways instructors approach interpretive themes in their introductory courses. We show how a transformed modern physics curriculum may positively impact student perspectives on indeterminacy and wave-particle duality, by making questions of classical and quantum reality a central theme of our course, but also by making the beliefs of our students, and not just those of scientists, an explicit topic of discussion.

The following manuscript aims at an introduction to modern methods in relativistic quantum many-body theory. We introduce many-body techniques, using relativistic quantum field theory, emphasizing the so-called real-time formulation.

By using the general concepts of special relativity and the requirements of quantum mechanics, Dirac equation is derived and studied. Only elementary knowledge of spin and rotations in quantum mechanics and standard linear algebra are required.

The goal here is to provide an introduction to the physical and mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics. We will provide rigorous treatments of just a few of the simplest and most fundamental systems with which quantum mechanics deals.

The failure of conventional quantum theory to recognize time as an observable and to admit time operators is addressed. We emphasize the role of the Hamiltonian as the generator of translations in time to construct time states.
