M337 TMA2 sent and SM358 books opened

M337 TMA2 went off today, together with my best guess at how to prove something which seemed rather abstract in nature – the bit I was stuck on.

No idea how correct my proof is, but I think it’s probably on the right lines.

Tomorrow kicks off my SM358 Quantum mechanics catch-up, but I have had the books out and Wiki open, turning posh words into normal words – infinite square well potential and all that.

Too early to say much except I opened the first TMA and discovered that a large lump of marks will depend on some fancy prose rather than mathematics, though there is maths in there for plenty of marks, too.

Just feels a bit of a weird and more subjective layout when compared with the absolute rigour of 100 marks-worth of maths at a time.

I’m going to buy some of the books Chris has previously mentioned on his blog to see a lot deeper into this subject than undergraduate level might otherwise go – it does interest me.

Aside from that, and thinking of moving to the outskirts of London in the near future, nothing new to report.
