Quantum Mechanics

Classical Results, Modern Systems, and Visualized Examples

Second Edition

Richard Robinett

  • Offers a thorough and modern introduction to the physical concepts, mathematical techniques, and visualization methods of quantum mechanics.
  • Extensive use of modern visualization methods to illustrate otherwise challenging quantum mechanical concepts.
  • Many direct connections to classic and modern experimental realizations of quantum mechanical phenomena.
  • Consistent use of classical-quantum connections to help students use their existing intuition to master quantum theory.
  • Web site with many novel additional instructional materials for use by both students and especially instructors, including: - solutions manual - additional worksheets (including solutions) - supplementary chapters on modern topics in quantum mechanics (see Preface for examples) - 80 page long ``Guide to the Pedagogical Literature on Quantum Mechanics'', surveying papers on quantum theory from many educational journals - quantum mechanics assessment test to help probe student understanding of quantum phenomena, especially visualization - copies of transparencies used in book.
