Fundamental Quantum Mechanics for Engineers
File Type :PDF
Number of Pages :324
This book is not intended to be an exercise in mathematical skills.
Review questions are targeted towards understanding the ideas, with the
mathematics as simple as possible. This document faces the very real conceptual
problems of quantum mechanics headon, including the collapse of the wave
function, the indeterminacy, the nonlocality, and the symmetrization requirements. Topics covered includes: Mathematical
Prerequisites, Basic Ideas of Quantum Mechanics, Single-Particle Systems,
Multiple-Particle Systems, The Hydrogen Molecule, Examples of Multiple-Particle
Systems, Heavier Atoms, Time Evolution.
