The Physics of Quantum Mechanics
by James Binney, David Skinner
Publisher: Capella Archive 2008
Number of pages: 278
This book aims to give students the best possible understanding of the physical implications of quantum mechanics by explaining how quantum systems evolve in time, and showing the close parallels between quantum and classical dynamics. The mathematical development of the subject is more self-contained and rigorous than in traditional texts because most eigenvalue problems are solved by operator methods.

These lectures describe the basic theoretical structures underlying the quantum Hall effect. The focus is on the interplay between microscopic wavefunctions, long-distance effective Chern-Simons theories, and the modes which live on the boundary.

The quantum measurement problem: why a unique outcome is obtained in each individual experiment, is currently tackled by solving models. After an introduction, we review the models proposed. A flexible and realistic quantum model is introduced...

An interesting topic of quantum mechanics is the study of open quantum systems. By it, we mean a simple quantum system, described by one or a few degrees of freedom, interacting with a background characterized by a continuum of excitations.

By using the general concepts of special relativity and the requirements of quantum mechanics, Dirac equation is derived and studied. Only elementary knowledge of spin and rotations in quantum mechanics and standard linear algebra are required.
