Lectures on Quantum Mechanics by Steven Weinberg

By Steven Weinberg

Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines unprecedented actual perception along with his reward for transparent exposition, to supply a concise advent to fashionable quantum mechanics, during this absolutely up-to-date moment variation of his profitable textbook. Now together with six fresh sections masking key subject matters comparable to the inflexible rotator and quantum key distribution, in addition to significant additions to latest subject matters all through, this revised variation is supreme to a one-year graduate path or as a reference for researchers. starting with a evaluate of the heritage of quantum mechanics and an account of vintage options of the Schrödinger equation, sooner than quantum mechanics is constructed in a latest Hilbert area strategy, Weinberg makes use of his outstanding services to explain issues reminiscent of Bloch waves and band constitution, the Wigner–Eckart theorem, magic numbers, isospin symmetry, and common scattering concept. difficulties are incorporated on the ends of chapters, with ideas to be had for teachers at www.cambridge.org/9781107111660.
