About this Textbook

This represents the introductory course which would precede and so complements the author's book on Advanced Quantum Mechanics. The new edition has been up-dated and thoroughly revised throughout and now includes many new or newly drawn figures which will facilitate an easier understanding of subtle topics. The book meets students' needs in providing detailed mathematical steps along the way, with worked examples and applications throughout the text, and many problems for the reader at the end of each chapter. It contains nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and a short treatment of the quantization of the radiation field. In addition to the essentials, topics such as the theory of measurement, the Bell inequality, decoherence, entanglement and supersymmetric quantum mechanics are discussed.

"Any student wishing to develop mathematical skills and deepen their understanding of the technical side of quantum theory will find Schwabl's Quantum Mechanics very helpful".

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"Quantum Mechanics … presents a nice balance between theory and practical applications in this work that is intended for introductory coursework. It is designed to complement the author’s Advanced Quantum Mechanics (2005). Schwabl (Technische Universität München) succinctly covers a wide range of topics in 20 chapters … . The book also includes worked examples and applications. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers and faculty." (D. B. Moss, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (10), June, 2008)

"It is an excellent introduction for students of physics or mathematics into the fundamentals of quantum mechanics covering the methods used in applications. … The main point is that the fundamentals and methods of quantum mechanics are mediated very well and guide the reader to apply them successfully. This book can be best recommended to students and lecturers." (K.-E. Hellwig, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1166, 2009)
