Publisher: Swarthmore College 2014
Number of pages: 693
Quantum mechanics is a collection of postulates based on a huge number of experimental observations and the set of tools and ideas derived from those postulates. In this book you will learn now the quantum world works, why it must work in this particular way, and how we might understand it.

Introduction to the subject of quantum mechanics, following the historical development of the theory. Physics and mathematics required. From the contents: atoms, the Feynman route to Schroedinger, the Schroedinger equation, entanglement.

This book is devoted to the second great scientific revolution of the last century, the development of Quantum Mechanics as the necessary replacement of Newtonian dynamics in dealing with the motion of the ultimate constituents of matter.

The text maintains the separation of the minimal set of postulates from the mathematical techniques. At the same time close contact with experiment will be maintained to avoid alienating the physics student. Mathematical rigor is also be maintained.

From the table of contents: historical development and early quantum mechanics; wave mechanics; some simple systems; formal quantum mechanics and some Hilbert space theory; noncommuting observables and uncertainty; additional topics.
