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.

Quantum transients are temporary features of matter waves before they reach a stationary regime. Transients may arise after the preparation of an unstable initial state or due to a sudden interaction or a change in the boundary conditions.

This text introduces quantum mechanics from a more abstract point of view than a first quantum mechanics course. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the structure of quantum mechanics and of some of its key points.

The quantum measurement problem: why a unique outcome is obtained in each individual experiment, is currently tackled by solving models. After an introduction, we review the models proposed. A flexible and realistic quantum model is introduced...

The book gives a consequent and mathematical formulation to the interpretation of quantum mechanics that is often met among practical physicists. The book ought to be accessible to students that finished the standard course of quantum mechanics.
