Enhance the thorough coverage of Gasiorowicz' Quantum Physics with a hands-on, real-world experience! Developed by the Consortium for Upper-Level Physics Software CUPS, this computer simulation for quantum mechanics offers complex, realistic calculations of models of various physical systems. Quantum Mechanics Simulations 54884-7 is the perfect complement to Gasiorowicz' text. Like all of the CUPS simulations, it is remarkably easy to use, yet sophisticated enough for explorations of new ideas.

Editorial Reviews

An introduction to quantum physics, emphasizing applications and worked examples. Covers the Schrodinger equation and wave mechanics, atomic physics problems and operator methods, and the interaction of charged particles with a magnetic field. A special topics section covers relativistic kinematics, the density operator, and the Wentzel- Kramers-Brillouin approximation. The second edition, published 20 years after the first, includes more attention to the physics behind the formal results of calculations and to radiation theory. Annotation c.
