Elementary Quantum Mechanics (Dover Books on Physics) by David S. Saxon

By David S. Saxon

in response to lectures for an undergraduate UCLA direction in quantum mechanics, this quantity makes a speciality of the formulation of quantum mechanics instead of functions. ordinary in either upper-level undergraduate and graduate classes, it bargains a extensive self-contained survey instead of in-depth treatments.
Topics comprise the twin nature of subject and radiation, kingdom capabilities and their interpretation, linear momentum, the movement of a loose particle, Schrödinger's equation, approximation tools, angular momentum, and plenty of different topics. within the pursuits of conserving the math so simple as attainable, lots of the ebook is constrained to issues of one-dimensional structures. a range of one hundred fifty difficulties, a lot of which require lengthy research, enlarge the text's teachings and an appendix includes options to 50 consultant difficulties. This version additionally contains a new creation by way of Joseph A. Rudnick and Robert Finkelstein.
