Quantum Mechanics. Mit CD-ROM für Windows ab 95/Mac OS
BeschreibungThis course on quantum mechanics gives a fresh and modern approach to the field. It is a textbook on the principles of the theory, its mathematical framework and its first applications. It constantly refers to modern and practical developments, tunneling microscopy, quantum information, Bell inequalities, quantum cryptography, Bose-Einstein condensation and quantum astrophysics. The book also contains 92 exercises with their solutions. Supplementary material on extras.springer.com contains outstanding and "easy access" Java-based simulations, which illustratively help the user to better understand how the theory actually operates. It also contains a variety of links where one can discover updated applications and further readings.

PressestimmenFrom the reviews of the first edition:"This textbook on quantum mechanics is the corrected second printing of the book, that first appeared in 2002. ... Great attention is paid to give some intuition of the phenomena ... . Connection to recent experiments and topics, objects of new research developments, as well as to the historical aspects, is made whenever possible. Also each chapter ends with a nice bibliography ... together with very interesting exercises ... . " (Bassano Vacchini, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1087, 2006)
