Synopsis

This book provides a comprehensive account of basic concepts of quantum mechanics in a coherent manner. The book is self-contained and not only covers basic concepts in quantum mechanics but also provides a basis for applications in atomic and laser physics, nuclear and particle physics, and condensed matter physics. It also covers relativistic quantum mechanics, in particular the Dirac equation and its applications.

Contents:
  • Breakdown of Classical Concepts
  • Quantum Mechanical Concepts
  • Basic Postulates of Quantum Mechanics
  • Solution of Problems in Quantum Mechanics
  • Simple Harmonic Oscillator
  • Angular Momentum
  • Motion in Centrally Symmetric Field
  • Collision Theory
  • Operators
