A course `advanced quantum mechanics' can be viewed on the one hand a course where some of the material is revisited and put into a broader context, on the other hand it should also show some of the advanced concepts, which lead from nonrelativistic quantum mechanics to the problems the incoorporation of special relativity intoduces to quantum mechancis, and which eventually lead to quantum field theory.
