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. Examples are diffraction in time, buildup processes, decay, trapping, forerunners or pulse formation, as well as other phenomena recently discovered, such as the simultaneous arrival of a wave peak at arbitrarily distant observers.

This text will survey the foundations of quantum mechanics, basic techniques for its application to the real world, and a number of standard examples. It is assumed that you have already had a previous undergraduate course in quantum mechanics.

The topic of quantum noise has become extremely timely due to the rise of quantum information physics. This review gives a pedagogical introduction to the physics of quantum noise and its connections to quantum measurement and quantum amplification.
by Gerard 't Hooft - Springer
This book presents the deterministic view of quantum mechanics developed by Gerard 't Hooft. 't Hooft has revived the old hidden variable ideas, but now in a much more systematic way. Quantum mechanics is viewed as a tool rather than a theory.

This undergraduate-level text applies quantum mechanics to some chemical and physical problems, covering wave functions for the hydrogen atom, perturbation theory, the Pauli exclusion principle, and the structure of simple and complex molecules.
