The subject of most of this book is
the quantum mechanics of systems which have a small number of degrees of
freedom. This book is a mix of descriptions of quantum mechanics itself, the
general properties of systems described by quantum mechanics, and general
techniques for describing their behavior. Topics covered includes: Quantum
mechanics in the language of Hilbert space, Time dependence in quantum
mechanics, Propagators and path integrals, Density matrices, Wave mechanics,
Angular momentum, Identical particles, Time independent perturbation theory, Variational methods and Time dependent perturbation theory.
which brought together an international community of invited authors, represents
a rich account of foundation, scientific history of quantum mechanics,
relativistic quantum mechanics and field theory, and different methods to solve
the Schrodinger equation.
The development of quantum
mechanics has taken physics in a vastly new direction from that of classical
physics from the very start. In fact, there continue at present to be many
developments in the subject of a very fundamental nature, such as implications
for the foundations of physics, physics of entanglement, geometric phases,
gravity and cosmology and elementary particles as well. It is hoped the papers
in this volume will provide a much needed resource for researchers with regard
to current topics of research in this growing area.
