Quantum Mechanics : In Physics and Chemistry with Applications to Biology Paperback / softback
This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the principles and applications of quantum mechanics, with equal emphasis on concept building and problem solving.
The book follows an integrated approach to expose students to applications of quantum mechanics in both physics and chemistry streams. A chapter is devoted to biological applications to benefit students pursuing courses in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics.
The book's unique organisation makes it suitable for both Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Chemistry courses. The book helps students grasp difficult concepts with simpler mathematics and intuitive language, but without sacrificing rigour.
It has informal classroom type approach suitable for self-learning. Key features:Provides about 200 worked-out examples and chapter-end problems with hints and answers related to different areas of modern science including biology. Highlights important technological developments based on Quantum Mechanics, such as electron microscope, scanning tunnelling microscope, lasers, Raman spectroscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). Includes detailed mathematical derivations in appendices for a more rigorous approach.
