"Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications" provides a clear, balanced and modern introduction to the subject. Written with the student's background and ability in mind, the book takes an innovative approach to quantum mechanics by combining the essential elements of the theory with the practical applications: it is therefore both a textbook and a problem solving book in one selfcontained volume. Carefully structured, the book starts with the experimental basis of quantum mechanics and then discusses its mathematical tools. Subsequent chapters cover the formal foundations of the subject, the exact solutions of the Schrodinger equation for one and three dimensional potentials, timeindependent and timedependent approximation methods, and finally, the theory of scattering. The text is richly illustrated throughout with many worked examples and numerous problems with stepbystep solutions designed to help the reader master the machinery of quantum mechanics. The new edition will be completely updated.
