Quantum Mechanics: Classical Results, Modern Systems, and Visualized Examples, 2 Edition

10 October 2010

**Quantum Mechanics: Classical Results, Modern Systems, and Visualized Examples, 2 Edition** by Richard Robinett

Oxford University Press, USA | 2006 | ISBN: 0198530978 | 720 pages | PDF | 17 MB

Quantum Mechanics: Classical Results, Modern Systems, and Visualized Examples is a comprehensive introduction to non-relativistic quantum mechanics for advanced undergraduate students in physics and related fields. It provides students with a strong conceptual background in the most important theoretical aspects of quantum mechanics, extensive experience with the mathematical tools required to solve problems, the opportunity to use quantum ideas to confront modern experimental realizations of quantum systems, and numerous visualizations of quantum concepts and phenomena. Changes from the First Edition include many new discussions of modern quantum systems (such as Bose-Einstein condensates, the quantum Hall effect, and wave packet revivals) all in the context of familiar textbook level examples. The book continues to emphasize the many connections to classical mechanics and wave physics to help students use their existing intuition to better learn new quantum concepts.

Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Information

30 November 2013

**Moses Fayngold, Vadim Fayngold - Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Information**

Published: 2013-05-28 | ISBN: 3527406476 | PDF | 860 pages | 8 MB

A thorough definition of the basic concepts of quantum mechanics and quantum information and their interrelations.

Alongside a thorough definition of the basic concepts and their interrelations, backed by numerous examples, this textbook features a rare discussion of the quantum information theory. It also deals with other important topics hardly found in the literature, including the Robertson-Schrodinger-relation, angle and angular momentum uncertainties, interaction-free measurements, and the limitations of the no-cloning theorem.

With its interpretations of quantum mechanics and its discussions of quantum computing, this book is poised to become the standard textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate quantum mechanics courses and as an essential reference for physics students and physics professionals.

Semiconductor Quantum Dots

**Semiconductor Quantum Dots**

"Semiconductor Quantum Dots" presents an overview of the background and recent developments in the rapidly growing field of ultrasmall semiconductor microscrystallites, in which the carrier confinement is sufficiently strong to allow only quantized states of the electrons and holes. The main emphasis of this book is the theoretical analysis of the confinement induced modifications of the optical and electronic properties of quantum dots in comparison to extended materials. The book develops the theoretical background material for the analysis of carrier quantum-confinement effects, it introduces different confinement regimes for absolute or center-of-mass motion quantization of the electron-hole-pairs, and it gives an overview of the best approximation schemes for each regime. A detailed discussion of the carrier states in quantum dots is presented, including variational calculations, a configuration interaction approach, and quantum Monte Carlo techniques. Surface polarization instabilities are analyzed which lead to the self-trapping of carriers near the surface of the dots and the influence of spin-orbit coupling on the quantum-confined carrier states is discussed. The linear and nonlinear optical properties of small and large quantum dots are analyzed in detail, including transient optical nonlinearities photon echo and two-photon transitions. The influence of the quantum-dot size distribution in many realistic samples is outlined, including the analysis of quantum dot growth laws and universal size distributions. Phonons in quantum dots, as well as the influence of external electric or magnetic fields are discussed. The recent developments dealing with regular systems of quantum dots are reviewed, including a lattice model of quantum dots and quantum dot superlattices....

Quantum Causality: Conceptual Issues in the Causal Theory of Quantum Mechanics

**Quantum Causality: Conceptual Issues in the Causal Theory of Quantum Mechanics **

244 pages | Dec 12, 2007 |ISBN:9048124026 | PDF | 8 Mb

This is especially true for quantum physics where debate on its interpretation and the status of the various entities postulated has raged in both the scientific and philosophical communities since the 1920s and continues to this day. Although it is readily granted that quantum mechanics produces some strange and counter-intuitive results, it is argued in Quantum Causality that quantum mechanics is not as weird as we might have been led to believe.

Solved Problems in Quantum and Statistical Mechanics

**Solved Problems in Quantum and Statistical Mechanics**

ISBN: 8847023149 | 2012 | 400 pages | PDF | 2.7 MB

This work arises from our teaching this subject during many years. The vast majority of these exercises are the exams we gave to our students in this period. We carefully selected the subjects of the exercises to cover all the material which is most needed and which is treated in the most well known texts on these subjects. Each exercise is carefully solved in full details, explaining the theory behind the solution with particular care for those issues that, from our experience, are found most difficult from the average student. Indeed, several exercises are designed to throw light on aspects of the theory that, for one reason or another, are usually neglected with the result to make the students feel uneasy about them. In fact most students get acquainted just with the more common manipulations, which are illustrated by many examples in textbooks. Our exercises never require extensive calculations but tend to be somewhat unusual and force the solver to think about the problem starting from the principles, rather than by analogy with some previously solved exercise.

Exploring Quantum Mechanics: A Collection of 700+ Solved Problems for Students, Lecturers, and Researchers (PDF)

30 December 2013

**Victor Galitski, "Exploring Quantum Mechanics: A Collection of 700+ Solved Problems for Students, Lecturers, and Researchers"**

English | ISBN: 0199232725, 0199232717 | 2013 | 904 pages | PDF | 5 MB

A series of seminal technological revolutions has led to a new generation of electronic devices miniaturized to such tiny scales where the strange laws of quantum physics come into play. There is no doubt that, unlike scientists and engineers of the past, technology leaders of the future will have to rely on quantum mechanics in their everyday work. This makes teaching and learning the subject of paramount importance for further progress. Mastering quantum physics is a very non-trivial task and its deep understanding can only be achieved through working out real-life problems and examples. It is notoriously difficult to come up with new quantum-mechanical problems that would be solvable with a pencil and paper, and within a finite amount of time. This book remarkably presents some 700+ original problems in quantum mechanics together with detailed solutions covering nearly 1000 pages on all aspects of quantum science. The material is largely new to the English-speaking audience.

Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics (2nd edition)

29 October 2012

**Stephen J. Gustafson, Israel Michael Sigal - Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics (2nd edition)**

Published: 2011-09-26 | ISBN: 3642218652 | PDF | 395 pages | 3 MB

The book gives a streamlined introduction to quantum mechanics while describing the basic mathematical structures underpinning this discipline. Starting with an overview of key physical experiments illustrating the origin of the physical foundations, the book proceeds with a description of the basic notions of quantum mechanics and their mathematical content. It then makes its way to topics of current interest, specifically those in which mathematics plays an important role. The more advanced topics presented include many-body systems, modern perturbation theory, path integrals, the theory of resonances, quantum statistics, mean-field theory, second quantization, the theory of radiation (non-relativistic quantum electrodynamics), and the renormalization group. With different selections of chapters, the book can serve as a text for an introductory, intermediate, or advanced course in quantum mechanics. The last four chapters could also serve as an introductory course in quantum field theory.
