"The book contains almost six hundred examples, problems and exercises, some of them fully solved. They are intended to empower students to become independent learners and adept practitioners of quantummechanics." (Mathematical Reviews, July 2010)
“Zettili provides a second edition of this textbook on quantum mechanics. The material is suitable for two undergraduate semesters and one graduate level semester.” ( Book News, September 2009)
From the Back Cover
The textbook begins with the origins of quantum physics and then continues with the mathematical tools of quantum mechanics and the postulates of quantum mechanics. The next chapters cover one-dimensional problems, angular momentum, and three-dimensional problems. Subsequent chapters deals with rotations and addition of angular momenta, identical particles, approximation methods for stationary states, time-dependent perturbation theory, and scattering theory. The text contains many worked examples and numerous comprehensive problems with step-by-step solutions designed to help the reader master the machinery of quantum mechanics.
Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications – Second Edition:
- Provides a comprehensive introduction to quantum mechanics, combining both a theoretical and practical approach.
- Offer an in-depth treatment of the practical mathematical tools of quantum mechanics and how to harness them to master the formalism of the theory.
- Includes numerous solved examples integrated throughout the text and each chapter concludes with an extensive collection of solved problems.
This text aimed at undergraduates and graduate students needing a textbook for a comprehensive treatment of quantum mechanics that is backed by an abundance of examples and fully solved, multistep problems. The book may also be useful for researchers needing a quick, practical guide covering the various techniques that are highly useful to manipulate the formalism of quantum mechanics.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
