Synopsis

Quantum Mechanics Classical Results, Modern Systems, and Visualized Examples by Richard W. Robinett

Quantum Mechanics: Classical Results, Modern Systems, and Visualized Examples is a comprehensive introduction to non-relativistic quantum mechanics for advanced undergraduate students in physics and related fields. It provides students with a strong conceptual background in the most important theoretical aspects of quantum mechanics, extensive experience with the mathematical tools required to solve problems, the opportunity to use quantum ideas to confront modern experimental realizations of quantum systems, and numerous visualizations of quantum concepts and phenomena. Changes from the First Edition include many new discussions of modern quantum systems (such as Bose-Einstein condensates, the quantum Hall effect, and wave packet revivals) all in the context of familiar textbook level examples. The book continues to emphasize the many connections to classical mechanics and wave physics to help students use their existing intuition to better learn new quantum concepts.

Reviews

Review from previous edition ...masterful...a well-written innovative book which stands apart from other undergraduate quantum mechanics texts. Foundations in Physics ...excellently written... I highly recommend it. Physics Today ...a valuable resource in the teaching and learning of quantum mechanics. Journal of Chemical Education ...a comprehensive introduction. Books Online
