A Modern Approach to Quantum Mechanics

A Modern Approach to Quantum Mechanics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for an upper-division course in quantum mechanics, primarily for students who have completed a course in modern physics that includes an introduction to quantum mechanics in the form of one- dimensional wave mechanics. Assuming such a course has taken care of the historical aspects, Townsend (physics, Harry Mudd College, Claremont, California) introduces the fundamentals through a detailed discussion of the physics of intrinsic spin. That way, students can deal with something interesting while bypassing the mathematics of wave mechanics.
