9780521598415: An Introduction to Quantum Theory

Underpinning the axiomatic formulation of quantum theory presented in this undergraduate textbook is a review of early experiments, a comparison of classical and quantal terminology, a Schroedinger-equation treatment of the one-dimensional quantum box, and a survey of relevant mathematics. Among the many concepts comprehensively discussed are: operators; state vectors and wave functions; experimental observables; classical/quantal connections; and symmetry properties. The theory is applied to a wide variety of systems including the non-relativistic H-atom, external electromagnetic fields, and spin. Collisions are described using wave packets. Various time-dependent and time-independent approximations are discussed; applications include electromagnetic transition rates and corrections to the H-atom energies. The final chapter deals with identical-particle symmetries and their application to the He atom, the Periodic Table and diatomic molecules.

Book Description:

This undergraduate textbook gives an in-depth introduction to the fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics and their application to a wide variety of physical systems. This material is supported by introductory chapters on important early experiments, terminology, and relevant mathematics. It is further augmented by the inclusion of some advanced topics that help to convey the still-evolving nature of quantum mechanics. Over 150 figures and 450 end-of-chapter exercises enhance the up-to-date treatment of the subject. This undergraduate text can also be used for self-study or as supplement in graduate courses.

About the Author:

F. S. Levin received his undergraduate degree from The Johns Hopkins University and his Ph.D. from University of Maryland. Following post-doctoral positions at Rice University, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Author-ity, he accepted an appointment in the Physics Department at Brown University, where he remained for 31 years until his retirement in 1998.
