Advanced Undergraduate Quantum Mechanics: Methods and Applications By Lev I. Deych
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 612 Pages | ISBN : 3319715496 | 13.25 MB
This introduction to quantum mechanics is intended for undergraduate students of physics, chemistry, and engineering with some previous exposure to quantum ideas. Following in Heisenberg’s and Dirac’s footsteps, this book is centered on the concept of the quantum state as an embodiment of all experimentally available information about a system, and its representation as a vector in an abstract Hilbert space. This conceptual framework and formalism are introduced immediately, and developed throughout the first four chapters, while the standard Schrödinger equation does not appear until Chapter 5.
