To improve the students’ understanding of various concepts and theories on quantum mechanics, this book is one good guide to look up to. The lucid writing and to the point chapters make it easier for better understanding and learning. The first five chapters of the book explain the basic concepts of quantum mechanics. After that, the book deals with various applications of quantum mechanics.
The chapters in the book are divided into two main sections. The first section includes chapters like the wave function, the time-independent Schrodinger equation, formalism, quantum mechanics in three dimensions, and identical particles.
The second section covers chapters on time-independent perturbation theory, the variational principles, the WKB approximation, time-dependent perturbation theory, the adiabatic approximation, and scattering.
With illustrative applications and diagrammatic representations, the book offers thorough, concise and well-researched information on each concept. Even various mathematical equations and problems are given in the book to help the students in several problem-solving techniques.
All of the given problems are well-formulated and even offers hints on how to solve them. Some of the problems are extremely difficult, which can be attempted by students who are already familiar with basic problems and comfortable with long calculus calculations.
About the Author
David J. Griffiths (born 1942) is a U.S. physicist and educator. He worked at Reed College from 1978 through 2009, becoming the Howard Vollum Professor of Science before his retirement. He is not to be confused with the late physicist David J. Griffiths of Oregon State University. He is principally known as the author of three highly regarded textbooks for undergraduate physics students: Introduction to Elementary Particles (published in 1987, second edition published 2008), Introduction to Quantum Mechanics (published in 1995, second edition published 2004), and Introduction to Electrodynamics (published in 1981, fourth edition published in 2012).
