Quirky Quantum Concepts
by Eric L. Michelsen - UCSD , 2013
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.
Introductory Quantum Theory
by Neil Lambert - King's College London , 2006
From the table of contents: historical development and early quantum mechanics; wave mechanics; some simple systems; formal quantum mechanics and some Hilbert space theory; noncommuting observables and uncertainty; additional topics.
Quantum Mechanics: Lecture Notes on Quantum Chemistry
by Eric R. Bittner - University of Houston , 2003
Contents: Survey of Classical Mechanics; Waves and Wavefunctions; Semi-Classical Quantum Mechanics; Postulates of Quantum Mechanics; Bound States of Schroedinger Equation; Quantum Mechanics 3D; Perturbation theory; Many Body Quantum Mechanics.
The Quantum Revolution
by Roy McWeeny - Learning Development Institute , 2011
This book is devoted to the second great scientific revolution of the last century, the development of Quantum Mechanics as the necessary replacement of Newtonian dynamics in dealing with the motion of the ultimate constituents of matter.
by James G. Branson - UCSD , 2008
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.
An Introduction to Quantum Chaos
by Mason A. Porter - arXiv , 2001
Nonlinear dynamics (''chaos theory'') and quantum mechanics are two of the scientific triumphs of the 20th century. The author gives a brief review of the origin and fundamentals of both quantum mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.
A Primer on Quantum Mechanics and Its Interpretations
by Casey Blood - arXiv , 2010
All the concepts necessary to understand quantum mechanics on an initial level are given in a form suitable for the non-expert. The topics include visualizing the wave function, wave-particle duality, the implications of Schrodinger's cat, etc.
Elementary Nonrelativistic Quantum Mechanics
by H. C. Rosu - arXiv , 2000
A graduate course on elementary quantum mechanics. The topics included are the postulates of quantum mechanics, one-dimensional barriers and wells, angular momentum and spin, WKB method, harmonic oscillator, hydrogen atom, quantum scattering, etc.
Quantum Mechanics and Spectroscopy
by M. Kuno - University of Notre Dame , 2006
From the table of contents: Schroedinger equation; Harmonic oscillator; Selection rules; Potential barrier; Perturbation theory; Three pictures of quantum mechanics; Line broadening; Irreversible decay; Maxwell's equations; The electric dipole; etc.
Quantum Principles and Particles
by Walter Wilcox - Baylor University , 1992
This is an introductory text, it includes material which overlaps with particle physics, including a number of interesting models as well as material on identical particles. The ideas of quantum mechanics are introduced via Process Diagrams.
Grains of Mystique: Quantum Physics for the Layman
by T. Haberkern, N. Deepak , 2002
Most of you will have heard the word quantum, and often wondered what it means, or what its significance is. If you wanted a simple tutorial, an introduction to quantum physics without all the hassles of mathematics, then read on.
by David C. Cassidy - American Institute of Physics , 2002
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.
Fundamental Quantum Mechanics for Engineers
by Leon van Dommelen , 2009
This book was written for engineering graduate students who find themselves caught up in nano technology. The first part of the book provides a solid introduction to classical quantum mechanics, the second part discusses more advanced topics.
This Quantum World
- Wikibooks , 2008
Introduction to the subject of quantum mechanics, following the historical development of the theory. Physics and mathematics required. From the contents: atoms, the Feynman route to Schroedinger, the Schroedinger equation, entanglement.
Lectures on Quantum Physics and Applications
by Paul E. Dimotakis - California Institute of Technology , 1980
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.
The origin and development of the quantum theory
by Max Planck - The Clarendon press , 1922
This is Max Planck's Nobel prize address delivered before the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences at Stockholm, 2 June, 1920. He sketches the history of the origin of the Quantum Theory, the development of this theory and its influence on the Physics.
