The book is an introduction to quantum mechanics at a level suitable for the second year in a European university (junior or senior year in an American college). The matrix formulation of quantum mechanics is emphasized throughout, and the student is introduced to Dirac notation from the start. A number of major examples illustrate the workings of quantum mechanics. Several of these examples are taken from solid state physics, with the purpose of showing that quantum mechanics forms the common basis for understanding atoms, molecules and condensed matter. The book contains an introductory chapter which puts the concepts of quantum mechanics into a historical framework. The solid-state applications discussed in this text include the quantum Hall effect, spin waves, quantum wells and energy bands. Other examples feature the two-dimensional harmonic oscillator, coherent states, two-electron atoms, the ammonia molecule and the chemical bond. A large number of homework problems are included.

Dr. Preparata (d. 2000), a professor at an unspecified Italian university, was among the minority of theoretical physicists challenging the standard model of quantum field theory with a "more realistic" quark model of the elementary particles of matter. He argues his case in five lecture-type essays. An appendix overviews the underlying math and formal logic. Lacks an index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

This 2004 textbook provides a pedagogical introduction to the formalism, foundations and applications of quantum mechanics. Part I covers the basic material which is necessary to understand the transition from classical to wave mechanics. Topics include classical dynamics, with emphasis on canonical transformations and the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, the Cauchy problem for the wave equation, Helmholtz equation and eikonal approximation, introduction to spin, perturbation theory and scattering theory. The Weyl quantization is presented in Part II, along with the postulates of quantum mechanics. Part III is devoted to topics such as statistical mechanics and black-body radiation, Lagrangian and phase-space formulations of quantum mechanics, and the Dirac equation. This book is intended for use as a textbook for beginning graduate and advanced undergraduate courses. It is self-contained and includes problems to aid the reader's understanding.

The subject of quantum mechanics has grown tremendously during the last century and revealed many hidden secrets of nature. It has enabled mankind move towards understanding the nature of matter and radiation. However, for the students its concepts have remained a problem to understand. Having deeply observed this situation and having himself experienced it, the author has presented the subject in the style of classroom teaching that reveals its marvels and the wide scope it offers. The book focuses on the evolution of the subject, the underlying ideas, the concepts, the laws and the mathematical apparatus for the formulation of the subject in a systematic and comprehensible manner. Each chapter is followed by a number of solved examples and problems, which are chosen so as to serve as guidelines in the application of the basic principles of quantum mechanics and to assist in solving more complex problems. Key Features • Written to develop passion for quantum mechanics; thus makes this tough subject look simple • Showcases the marvels and scope of quantum mechanics • Meets the syllabi requirements of all undergraduate courses

Introduction to Quantum Mechanics

Schr”dinger Equation and Path Integral

Page: 805

After a consideration of basic quantum mechanics, this introduction aims at a side by side treatment of fundamental applications of the Schr”dinger equation on the one hand and the applications of the path integral on the other. Different from traditional texts and using a systematic perturbation method, the solution of Schr”dinger equations includes also those with anharmonic oscillator potentials, periodic potentials, screened Coulomb potentials and a typical singular potential, as well as the investigation of the large order behavior of the perturbation series. On the path integral side, after introduction of the basic ideas, the expansion around classical configurations in Euclidean time, such as instantons, is considered, and the method is applied in particular to anharmonic oscillator and periodic potentials. Numerous other aspects are treated on the way, thus providing the reader an instructive overview over diverse quantum mechanical phenomena, e.g. many other potentials, Green's functions, comparison with WKB, calculation of lifetimes and sojourn times, derivation of generating functions, the Coulomb problem in various coordinates, etc. All calculations are given in detail, so that the reader can follow every step.
