The Physics of Quantum Mechanics

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.

With the development of the quantum information interpretation of quantum mechanics, the tendency is to move away from wave mechanics to the more abstract linear algebra version. It is this view of quantum mechanics that is presented in these notes.

This text introduces quantum mechanics from a more abstract point of view than a first quantum mechanics course. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the structure of quantum mechanics and of some of its key points.

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the Bohmian formulation of quantum mechanics. After a historical review, a formal explanation of Bohmian mechanics for nonrelativistic, single-particle quantum systems is presented.
