Book Description

Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics; 3rd Edition (PDF) is a clear and detailed introduction to quantum mechanics and its applications in physics and chemistry. All required mathematics is clearly explained; including intermediate steps in derivations; and concise review of the maths is included in the textbook at appropriate points. Most of the elementary quantum mechanical models — including particles in boxes; barrier penetration; harmonic oscillator; rigid rotor; hydrogen atom — are clearly and completely presented. Applications of these models to selected “real world” topics are also included in this ebook.

This new 3rd edition includes many new topics such as band theory and heat capacity of solids; spectroscopy of molecules and complexes (including applications to ligand field theory); and small molecules of astrophysical interest.

  • Problems given at the end of each chapter help college students to master difficult concepts
  • Presents results of quantum mechanical calculations that can be performed with readily available of-the-shelf software
  • Accessible style and colorful illustrations make the content appropriate for college students and professional researchers alike
  • Provides exceptionally clear discussions of spin-orbit coupling and group theory; and comprehensive coverage of barrier penetration (quantum mechanical tunneling) that touches upon hot topics; such as superconductivity and scanning tunneling microscopy
