On the Shoulders of Giants

1st Edition

Lines M E
January 01, 1994

Mathematics is the only science with a methodology based upon deductive logic, whereas physics is a quantitative science based upon experiment and observation in which trial and error are inherent. Physics uses the most relevant mathematics, for example using group theory to explain the theoretical...

Quantum Mechanics: Fundamentals

1st Edition

Kurt Gottfried
December 21, 1993

This classic text provides a comprehensive exposition of the concepts and techniques of quantum mechanics. The phenomena treated are sufficiently simple to allow the student to readily assess the validity of the models so that attention is not deflected from the heart of the subject. To that end,...
