Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications

Publisher: State University of New York at New Paltz 2003
Number of pages: 203
The present text will maintain the separation of the minimal set of postulates from the mathematical techniques. At the same time close contact with experiment will be maintained to avoid alienating the physics student. Mathematical rigor will also be maintained barring some exceptions where it would take the reader too far afield into mathematics.
