Quantum The Quantum Theory of Particles, Fields and Cosmology by E. Elbaz

A new approach to the teaching of quantum physics. The first seven chapters present nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and its interpretation, as well as perturbations and scattering theory. While including Dirac's and Feynman's formalisms, the chapter on symmetry also treats gauge transformations. The quantum theory of angular momentum includes the isospin of leptons and quarks and uses as a new tool the graphical spin algebra. The second part of the book is devoted to quantum fields: Boson fields including Higgs fields, Dirac's theory of Fermion fields, quantum electrodynamic and quantum chromodynamics. The whole is rounded off by a brief review guaranteed to raise the students' interests in quantum cosmology. Readers will also find many detailed worked examples and numerous problems designed to test their own understanding.
