About this book

This book gives a modern, comprehensive introduction to the principles of quantum mechanics, to the main approximation methods and to the application of quantum theory to a wide variety of systems. The needs of students having an average mathematical ability are kept very much in mind, with the avoidance of complex mathematical arguments and any undue compression of material


Contents

Preface. 1. The origins of quantum theory. 2. The wave function and the uncertainty principle. 3. The Schrodinger equation. 4. One-dimensional examples. 5. The formalism of quantum mechanics. 6.
