Quantum Mechanics: Classical Results, Modern Systems, and Visualized Examples is a comprehensive introduction to non-relativistic quantum mechanics for advanced undergraduate students in physics and related fields. It provides students with a strong conceptual background in the most important theoretical aspects of quantum mechanics, extensive experience with the mathematical tools required to solve problems, the opportunity to use quantum ideas to confront modern experimental realizations of quantum systems, and numerous visualizations of quantum concepts and phenomena. Changes from the First Edition include many new discussions of modern quantum systems (such as Bose-Einstein condensates, the quantum Hall effect, and wave packet revivals) all in the context of familiar textbook level examples. The book continues to emphasize the many connections to classical mechanics and wave physics to help students use their existing intuition to better learn new quantum concepts.

Review:


Reviews of the First Edition


"Richard Robinett has used his extenisve experience in teaching undergraduate quatum mechanics to write an outstanding textbook with a distinctive flavor....he does a masterful job in all these areas....the book is well organized....the heavy stress on visualization is to be commended....questions and problems of very high quality....Robinett has an elegant conversational style of writing which is succint and easy to read. The result is a well-written innovative book which stands apart from other undergraduate quantum mechanics texts."--Uday Sukhatm, University of Illinois at Chicago, Foundations of Physics


"Throughout, [Robinett] makes extensive use of comparison between the quantum and classical probability distributions. These enriching additions are overlaid on an excellently written, comprehensive treatment of quantum physics fundamentals....Each chapter ends with an especially rich and novel selection of problems at varying levels of difficulty....I definitely would choose Robinett's book as a main textbook, and I highly recommend it for Physics libraries."--Suzanne Amador, Haverford College, Physics Today


"I would strongly recommend the book for consideration as a text"--R.D. Murphy, University of Missouri-Kansas City, American Journal of Physics


"....its wide range of subjects, assortment of applications and problems, and visual environment make it a valuable resource in the teaching and learning or quantum mechanics."--C. Michael McCallum, University of the Pacific, Journal of Chemical Education


"Robinett offers not only a comprehensive introduction to the subject for undergraduates, but also an impressive array of visualizations and diagrams, to instill readers with a true feel for the science."--Books Online
