Machine generated contents note: Preface; Notation -- Historical introduction -- Particle states in a central potential -- General principles of quantum mechanics -- Spin -- Approximations for energy eigenstates -- Approximations for time-dependent problems -- Potential scattering -- General scattering theory -- The canonical formalism -- Charged particles in electromagnetic fields -- The quantum theory of radiation -- Entanglement.
Abstract: "Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines his exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition to provide a concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics. Ideally suited to a one-year graduate course, this textbook is also a useful reference for researchers. Readers are introduced to the subject through a review of the history of quantum mechanics and an account of classic solutions of the Schrödinger equation, before quantum mechanics is developed in a modern Hilbert space approach. The textbook covers many topics not often found in other books on the subject, including alternatives to the Copenhagen interpretation, Bloch waves and band structure, the Wigner-Eckart theorem, magic numbers, isospin symmetry, the Dirac theory of constrained canonical systems, general scattering theory, the optical theorem, the 'in-in' formalism, the Berry phase, Landau levels, entanglement and quantum computing. Problems are included at the ends of chapters, with solutions available for instructors at www.cambridge.org/9781107028722"--Summary: "Ideally suited to a one-year graduate course, this textbook is also a useful reference for researchers.
