About this Textbook

This textbook offers a clear and comprehensive introduction to methods and applications in quantum mechanics, one of the core components of undergraduate physics courses.  It follows on naturally from the previous volumes in this series, thus developing the understanding of quantized states further on. The first part of the book introduces the quantum theory of angular momentum and approximation methods. More complex themes are covered in the second part of the book, which describes multiple particle systems and scattering theory. 

Ideally suited to undergraduate students with some grounding in the basics of quantum mechanics, the book is enhanced throughout with learning features such as boxed inserts and chapter summaries, with key mathematical derivations highlighted to aid understanding.  The text is supported by numerous worked examples and end of chapter problem sets. 

About the Theoretical Physics series

Translated from the renowned and highly successful German editions, the eight volumes of this series cover the complete core curriculum of theoretical physics at undergraduate level. Each volume is self-contained and provides all the material necessary for the individual course topic. Numerous problems with detailed solutions support a deeper understanding.  Wolfgang Nolting is famous for his refined didactical style and has been referred to as the "German Feynman" in reviews.

About the authors

Prof. Dr Wolfgang Nolting is an emeritus professor of physics of the German Humboldt University in Berlin, whose research interests span solid state physics and magnetism.  He has over 40 years of teaching experience at various institutions including the University of Münster, ETH Zürich, the University of Würzburg and the Universidad de Valladolid in Spain.  His acclaimed German textbook series on Theoretical Physics has now attained the rank of a standard work in physics education.
