From Classical to Quantum Mechanics: An Introduction to the by Giampiero Esposito,Giuseppe Marmo,George Sudarshan

By Giampiero Esposito,Giuseppe Marmo,George Sudarshan

This 2004 textbook presents a pedagogical creation to the formalism, foundations and purposes of quantum mechanics. half I covers the fundamental fabric that is essential to comprehend the transition from classical to wave mechanics. subject matters comprise classical dynamics, with emphasis on canonical variations and the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, the Cauchy challenge for the wave equation, Helmholtz equation and eikonal approximation, creation to spin, perturbation thought and scattering conception. The Weyl quantization is gifted partially II, besides the postulates of quantum mechanics. half III is dedicated to themes akin to statistical mechanics and black-body radiation, Lagrangian and phase-space formulations of quantum mechanics, and the Dirac equation. This publication is meant to be used as a textbook for starting graduate and complicated undergraduate classes. it's self-contained and contains difficulties to help the reader's understanding.

Field Theory of Non-Equilibrium Systems

The physics of non-equilibrium many-body structures is likely one of the such a lot swiftly increasing components of theoretical physics. usually utilized in the learn of laser physics and superconducting kinetics, those concepts have extra lately stumbled on functions within the examine of dynamics of chilly atomic gases, mesoscopic and nano-mechanical structures.

The Quantum World

Quantum physics has, at the one hand, tremendously replaced our theoretical description of the actual global and has, nonetheless, revolutionized daily life, through permitting us to construct lasers, atomic clocks utilized in GPS, and semiconductor-based units comparable to computer pcs and smartphones. the thing of this e-book is to offer a self-contained creation to either points.

Lectures on the Mathematics of Quantum Mechanics I (Atlantis Studies in Mathematical Physics: Theory and Applications)

The 1st quantity (General idea) differs from so much textbooks because it emphasizes the mathematical constitution and mathematical rigor, whereas being tailored to the educating the 1st semester of a sophisticated direction in Quantum Mechanics (the content material of the publication are the lectures of classes really introduced.

Introduction to Quantum Theory

When you consider that its emergence within the early 20th century, quantum thought has turn into the basic actual paradigm, and is vital to our knowing of the area. delivering a deeper knowing of the microscopic global via quantum thought, this supplementary textual content stories a much broader variety of issues than traditional textbooks.
