About this Textbook

Advanced Visual Quantum Mechanics is a systematic effort to investigate and to teach quantum mechanics with the aid of computer-generated animations. It is a self-contained textbook that combines selected topics from atomic physics (spherical symmetry, the hydrogen atom, and particles with spin) with an introduction to quantum information theory (qubits, EPR paradox, teleportation, quantum computers). It explores relativistic quantum mechanics and the strange behavior of Dirac equation solutions. A series of appendices covers important topics from perturbation and scattering theory. The book places an emphasis on ideas and concepts, with a fair to moderate amount of mathematical rigor.
Though this book stands alone, it can also be paired with Thaller Visual Quantum Mechanics to form a comprehensive course in quantum mechanics. The software for the first book earned the European Academic Software Award 2000 for outstanding innovation in its field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Each chapter provides an overview and highlights recent advances in its particular area. … there are several valuable tidbits for potential new uses of existing techniques such as atomic force microscopy. This book will serve as a valuable reference for anyone working with microfluidics or biochip devices … ." (Jamie Quinton, Australian Physics, Vol. 42 (4), September/October, 2005)

"Advanced visual quantum mechanics is a systematic effort to investigate and to teach quantum mechanics with the aid of computer generated animations. …Furthermore, in each chapter, within the text the reader can find about 20-30 exercises – without solutions, but most of them rather straightforward to solve. … Advanced visual quantum mechanics can be recommended as an excellent textbook … ." (H. Hogreve, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 g)

"I insist that this book is much more than a gallery of animated illustrations: the author tried and succeeded in presenting quantum theory in a completely original way. … this book would be one of the best introductions ever written about quantum mechanics. No need to conclude that this book is a must even for the undergraduate student. Teachers will appreciate to renew the presentation of their courses." (André Hautot, Physicalia, Vol. 28 (4-6), 2006)
