Lecture Summary 03/7/2007

Today we discussed transitions using time independent perturbation theory. Some strange things happened with relativity that I didn't catch. OK -- I didn't catch it because I was working on a homework assignment during lecture.

The end result was the formula for the decay transition of an individual system, which coincidentally is the same as the formula for fractional decay in a bulk material from statistical mechanics. The two decay rules are distinct, as they are based on different physics and describe different systems.
