The key postulates of quantum mechanics are well illustrated by a carefully chosen set of problems complete with detailed, step-by-step solutions within this textbook. The physical interpretation or application of certain results is highlighted throughout as well, thereby providing useful insights into a wide range of systems and phenomena.
