The Physics of Quantum Mechanics
by James Binney, David Skinner
Publisher: Capella Archive 2008
Number of pages: 278
This book aims to give students the best possible understanding of the physical implications of quantum mechanics by explaining how quantum systems evolve in time, and showing the close parallels between quantum and classical dynamics. The mathematical development of the subject is more self-contained and rigorous than in traditional texts because most eigenvalue problems are solved by operator methods.

A qualitative representation of microstates is established quite independently of the quantum mechanical mathematical formalism. The foundations of an intelligible reconstruction of the Hilbert-Dirac formulation of Quantum Mechanics is developed.
