A Modern Approach to Quantum Mechanics
|von John S. Townsend|
From Book News, Inc. A textbook for an upper-division course in quantum mechanics, primarily for students who have completed a course in modern physics that includes an introduction to quantum mechanics in the form of one- dimensional wave mechanics. Assuming such a course has taken care of the historical aspects, Townsend (physics, Harry Mudd College, Claremont, California) introduces the fundamentals through a detailed discussion of the physics of intrinsic spin. That way, students can deal with something interesting while bypassing the mathematics of wave mechanics.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Synopsis Inspired by Richard Feynman and J.J. Sakurai, "A Modern Approach to Quantum Mechanics" allows lecturers to expose their undergraduates to Feynman's approach to quantum mechanics while simultaneously giving them a textbook that is well-ordered, logical and pedagogically sound. This book covers all the topics that are typically presented in a standard upper-level course in quantum mechanics, but its teaching approach is new. Rather than organizing his book according to the historical development...
