About this Textbook

This introductory course on quantum mechanics by has been revised and updated. In a concise and comprehensible manner it lays the foundation to advanced courses on the physics of atoms, elementary particles, and condensed matter. It meets the students' needs in giving all intermediate mathematical steps, worked examples with applications throughout the text, and many problems at the end of each chapter. The book contains nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and a short treatment of the quantization of the radiation field. Besides essentials such as scattering theory, time dependent phenomena, and the density matrix, topics such as the theory of measurement, the Bell inequality, and supersymmetric quantum mechanics are also discussed.
