Quantum Mechanics

P.J.E. Peebles


This book explains the often counterintuitive physics of quantum mechanics, unlocking this key area of physics for students by enabling them to work through detailed applications of general concepts and ideas. The book states general principles first in terms of wave mechanics and then in the standard abstract linear space formalism. It offers a detailed discussion of measurement theory — an essential feature of quantum mechanics — and emphasizes the art of numerical estimates. Along the way, the book provides a wealth of physical examples together with numerous problems, some easy, some chall ... More

Keywords: quantum mechanics, wave mechanics, abstract linear space, formalism, measurement theory, numerical estimates
