Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and ApplicationsQuantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications
by Tarun Biswas - State University of New York at New Paltz , 2003
The text maintains 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 is also be maintained.
