For more than 25 years, Alastair Rae's Quantum Mechanics has been one of the most highly regarded textbooks in this area. From elementary atomic physics and mathematics, to angular momentum and time dependence, to relativity and quantum computing, the text shows how cutting-edge research topics of quantum mechanics have been applied to various disciplines.

Retaining the clarity of its predecessors, this fifth edition presents revised and updated material throughout the text. It offers a clear exposition of fundamental ideas, additional worked examples of the application of quantum mechanics principles to a range of physical problems, and more information on modern quantum information technology. This text was one of the first to include a substantial discussion of the conceptual and philosophical implications of quantum mechanics, which has been revised and extended in the fifth edition. Other topics covered include one- and three-dimensional Schrödinger equations, angular momentum, time-independent perturbation theory, time dependence, scattering, and relativity.

Cementing its reputation as an exceptional introductory textbook, Quantum Mechanics, Fifth Edition fully covers the concepts of quantum mechanics taught in an undergraduate physics course and provides the foundation necessary for other specialized courses.

About the Author:

Birmingham University, UK

Review:

Praise for previous editions
... an excellent undergraduate text. The material is very well written, logically presented, and illustrated with relevant contemporary examples wherever appropriate ... an extremely useful text for anyone studying or teaching quantum physics at the tertiary level. It would also be a valuable reference for postgraduate students needing a reasonably solid understanding of quantum mechanics for their research in other fields.
-P.V. Smith, The Physicist

Rae's book has struck almost exactly the right note in attractiveness of language without loss of rigor, and is informal in style and related in tone...
-The Times Higher Education Supplement

...fully hits its target as a highly stimulating introduction. This book certainly deserves its place in all university libraries and laboratories.
-Semiconductor Science and Technology

... One of the major strengths of Rae's work is the lucidly written text and explanation of the steps ... This remains an excellent course book in quantum mechanics and I would strongly recommend it as an undergraduate text for quantum physics.
-Dr. K. Dholakia, Contemporary Physics
