Summary

Providing a unified account of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics covers the principles and formalism of quantum mechanics and the development and application of general techniques for the solution of quantum mechanical problems. The author has done everything possible to make the math in this book accessible.

The book is divided into three parts. The first part provides the historical basis and mathematical foundations on nonrelativistic quantum theory. The physical systems considered in this part are mainly in one dimension. The second part covers the fundamentals of quantum theory in three dimensions. Many-particle systems, the motion of a particle in three dimensions, angular and spin momenta, interaction of a charged particle with external fields, and matrix mechanical formulation of quantum mechanics are discussed in this part. The third part contains the approximation methods used in quantum mechanics and scattering theory.

Carefully designed to cover the entire topic, the book provides sufficient breadth and depth both to familiarize readers with the basic ideas and mathematical expressions of quantum mechanics and to form the basis for deeper understanding.
