About this Textbook

Scheck’s Quantum Physics presents a comprehensive introductory treatment, ideally suited for a two-semester course. Part One covers the basic principles and prime applications of quantum mechanics, from the uncertainty relations to many-body systems. Part Two introduces to relativistic quantum field theory and ranges from symmetries in quantum physics to electroweak interactions. Numerous worked-out examples as well as exercises, with solutions or hints, enables the book’s use as an accompanying text for courses, and also for independent study. For both parts, the necessary mathematical framework is treated in adequate form and detail. The book ends with appendices covering mathematical fundamentals and enrichment topics, plus selected biographical notes on pioneers of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. The new edition was thoroughly revised and now includes new sections on quantization using the path integral method and on deriving generalized path integrals for bosonic and fermionic fields.

Reviews

“The book has originated from the many lectures given by the author. It contains an extensive introduction to quantum mechanics, including the necessary mathematical formalism and multiple excursions, remarks, and exercises. … It appears very suitable for lecturers teaching a two-semester course on quantum mechanics or also for individual study.” (Gernot Schaller, zbMATH 1311.81005, 2015)

“Scheck’s book may be best suited for students who are attracted to quantum field theory and nuclear or particle physics. In particular, the competent and efficient balance between mathematical calculations and their physical content and interpretation, between formulas and words, will certainly render Scheck’s text very useful and appealing to many readers. … this English edition of the book will become a favorite text for quantum mechanics students like the corresponding German volumes already have been for some years.” (H. Hogreve, Mathematical Reviews, June, 2014)
