Overview

This text is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students needing a textbook for a comprehensive treatment of quantum mechanics that is backed by an abundance of examples and fully solved, multistep problems. The book may also be useful for researchers needing a quick, practical guide covering the various techniques that are highly useful to manipulate the formalism of quantum mechanics.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Written for beginning students, this introduction combines essential theory with many practical applications, illustrated with numerous examples and solved problems. It explains the experimental basis of quantum mechanics and then explains the mathematical tools. Subsequent chapters cover the formal foundations of quantum mechanics, the exact solutions of the Schrodinger equation, time- independent and time-dependent approximation methods, and the theory of scattering. Zettili teaches physics at the Jacksonville State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"...a good introductory text?far superior to most standard textbooks...highly recommended..." (American Journal of Physics, Vol. 71, No. 1, January 2003)

    Excellent

    This book is exactly what you want if you have registered a Quantum Mechanics course for your next semister. Unlike another quantum books, it has alot ,really alot, of solved problems helping you to deeply understand the subject. The auther could relate the solid material of quantum to many practical and useful physical facts. I reallllly recommend this book.. don't miss it!!
