Written by a renowned professor of physics, this introductory text is geared toward graduate students taking a year-long course in quantum mechanics in which the third quarter is devoted to relativistic wave equations and field theory. Difficult concepts are introduced gradually, and the theory is applied to physically interesting problems. After an introductory chapter on the formation of quantum mechanics, the treatment advances to examinations of the quantum theory of the free electromagnetic field, the interaction of radiation and matter, second quantization, the interaction of quantized fields, and quantum electrodynamics. Additional topics include the theory of beta decay, particles that interact among themselves, quasi particles in plasmas and metals, and the problem of infinities in quantum electrodynamics. The Appendix contains selected answers to problems that appear throughout the text.
Emphasis is placed on analogies between the various systems rather than on advanced or specialized aspects, with the purpose of illustrating common ideas within different domains of physics. Starting from a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics and classical electromagnetism, the exposition is self-contained and explicitly details all steps of the derivations. The new edition features a substantially new treatment of nucleon pairing.
The text Quantum Mechanics - An Introduction has found many friends among physics students and researchers so that the need for a third edition has arisen. There was no need for a major revision of the text but I have taken the opportunity to make several amendments and improvements. A number of misprints and minor errors have been corrected and a few clarifying remarks have been added at various places. A few figures have been added or revised, in particular the three-dimensional density plots in Chap. 9. I am grateful to several colleagues for helpful comments, in particular to Prof. R.A. King (Calgary) who supplied a comprehensive list of corrections. I also thank Dr. A. Scherdin for help with the figures and Dr. R. Mattiello who has supervised the preparation of the third edition of the book. Furthermore I acknowledge the agreeable collaboration with Dr. H. 1. Kolsch and his team at Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg.
The proceedings contain essentially the invited and contributed papers at the symposium which presented new results.
This revised and updated textbook has been designed for advanced quantum physics courses. It includes discussion of scattering and integral quantum mechanics, relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum fields and many-body theory.
This widely anticipated book by a leading expert in the field, is designed to meet the changing quantum mechanics needs of general and applied physicists involved in such areas as solid state research, quantum electronics, materials science, etc. This book uses new and less abstract ways to present formal concepts. For electrical engineers in the semiconductor areas.
Now available in a convenient paperback edition! Volume 1 treats in detail the fundamental concepts of the theory of groups and their role in physics, plus their application to molecular and solid state physics. In Volume 2 the theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras is presented and applied to atomic and high-energy physics, concluding with an account of the recently developed gauge theories of fundamental interactions.The extensive appendices contain background material and comprehensive tabulations of ther properties of crystallographic point groups and semi-simple Lie groups and Lie algebras.
An explanation of the basic concepts of theoretical and experimental nuclear and particle physics.
