Quantum Mechanics Hardback
by P. K. Ghosh
QUANTUM MECHANICS, designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of physics, mathematics and chemistry, provides a concise yet self-contained introduction to the formal framework of quantum mechanics, its application to physical problems and the interpretation of the theory.
Starting with a review of some of the necessary mathematics, the basic concepts are carefully developed in the text.
After building a general formalism, detailed treatment of the standard material - the harmonic oscillator, the hydrogen atom, angular momentum theory, symmetry transformations, approximation methods, identical particle and many-particle systems, and scattering theory - is presented.
The concluding chapter discusses the interpretation of quantum mechanics.
Some of the important topics discussed in the book are the rigged Hilbert space, deformation quantization, path integrals, coherent states, geometric phases, decoherene, etc.
This book is characterized by clarity and coherence of presentation.
