Partial contents:
Stern-Gerlach experiments -- Operators and measurement -- Schrodinger time evolution -- Quantum spookiness -- Quantized energies: particle in a box -- Unbound states -- Angular momentum -- Hydrogen atom -- Harmonic oscillator -- Perturbation theory -- Hyperfine structure and the addition of angular momentum -- Perturbation of hydrogen -- Identical particles -- Time dependent perturbation theory -- Periodic systems -- Modern applications.
Abstract: This innovative new text presents quantum mechanics in a manner that directly reflects the methods used in modern physics research—making the material more approachable and preparing students more thoroughly for real research. Most texts in this area start with a bit of history and then move directly to wave-particle problems with accompanying heavy mathematical analysis; Quantum Mechanics provides a foundation in experimental phenomena and uses a more approachable, less intimidating, more powerful mathematical matrix model. Beginning with the Stern-Gerlach experiments and the discussion of spin measurements, and using bra-ket notation, the authors introduce an important notational system that is used throughout quantum mechanics. This non-traditional presentation is designed to enhance students’ understanding and strengthen their intuitive grasp of the subject.
