by Paul E. Dimotakis - California Institute of Technology
Classical and wave mechanics, Schroedinger equation, quantum behavior in one-dimensional potentials, harmonic oscillator, orbital angular momentum, electromagnetic field, spin, radiation and matter, emission and absorption, and more.
by Eric L. Michelsen - UCSD
Wave mechanics, 1D scattering, matrix mechanics, angular momentum, spin-1/2, updated quantum electromagnetic interactions. This work is meant to be used with a standard text, to help emphasize those things that are most confusing for new students.
by David C. Cassidy - American Institute of Physics
The uncertainty principle is explained with text, pictures and voice clips. Heisenberg's leading biographer tells the full story of this eventful life, including the physicist's controversial role in Nazi Germany's nuclear program.
by James G. Branson - UCSD
This set of notes covers a 3 quarter advanced undergraduate quantum physics course at UCSD, from the beginning of Quantum Mechanics to the quantization of the electromagnetic field and the Dirac equation. Lecture videos are included.
