Introduction To Quantum Mechanics 2ND Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book first teaches learners how to "do" quantum mechanics, and then provides them with a more insightful discussion of what it "means." Fundamental principles are covered, quantum theory presented, and special techniques developed for attacking realistic problems. The book's two-part coverage organizes topics under basic theory, and assembles an arsenal of approximation schemes with illustrative applications. This best-selling quantum mechanics book includes:
  • Completely rewritten chapter on the formalism of quantum mechanics (chapter 3)
  • Streamlines the treatment for more effective instructor presentation and student comprehension.
  • Many added problems and worked examples. Introduces students to computer-based material using Mathematica
  • Concise yet comprehensive presentation. Avoids the temptation to include every possible relevant topic, in order to give students a complete treatment that is not oppressively long.
  • Straightforward writing style — entertains and informs without intimidating.
  • Presents students with material that they can easily focus on — with few distractions and diversions.
  • Computer-based problems, using Mathematica, have been added to the second edition.
