1 | Mark Srednicki | Quantum Field Theory |

Review; Quantum field theory is the basic mathematical framework that is used to describe elementary particles. This textbook provides a complete and essential introduction to the subject. Assuming only an undergraduate knowledge of quantum mechanics and special relativity, this book is ideal for graduate students beginning the study of elementary particles. The step-by-step presentation begins with basic concepts illustrated by simple examples, and proceeds through historically important results to thorough treatments of modern topics such as the renormalization group, spinor-helicity methods for quark and gluon scattering, magnetic monopoles, instantons, supersymmetry, and the unification of forces. The book is written in a modular format, with each chapter as self-contained as possible, and with the necessary prerequisite material clearly identified. It is based on a year-long course given by the author and contains extensive problems, with password protected solutions available to lecturers at www.cambridge.org/9780521864497. |

5 | G. Esposito, G. Marmo & G.Sudarshan | From classical to Quantum Mechanics |

Review; Providing a textbook introduction to the formalism, foundations and applications of quantum mechanics, Part I covers the basic material necessary to understand the transition from classical to wave mechanics. The Weyl quantization is presented in Part II, along with the postulates of quantum mechanics. Part III is devoted to advances in quantum physics. Intended for use in beginning graduate and advanced undergraduate courses, the volume is self-contained and includes problems to enhance reading comprehension. |

6 | C. Tang | Fundalmentals of Quantum Mechanics for Solid State Electronics and Optics |

Review; Quantum mechanics has evolved from a subject of study in pure physics to one with a wide range of applications in many diverse fields. The basic concepts of quantum mechanics are explained in this book in a concise and easy-to-read manner, leading toward applications in solid-state electronics and optics. Following a logical sequence, the book focuses on key ideas and is conceptually and mathematically self-contained. The fundamental principles of quantum mechanics are illustrated by showing their application to systems such as the hydrogen atom, multi-electron ions and atoms, the formation of simple organic molecules and crystalline solids of practical importance. It leads on from these basic concepts to discuss some of the most significant applications in semiconductor electronics and optics. Containing many homework problems, the book is suitable for senior-level undergraduate and graduate-level students in electrical engineering, material sciences, applied physics and chemistry. |

7 | A. Phillips | Introduction to Quantum Mechanics |

Review; Introduction to Quantum Mechanics is an introduction to the power and elegance of quantum mechanics. Assuming little in the way of prior knowledge, quantum concepts are carefully and precisely presented, and explored through numerous applications and problems. Some of the more challenging aspects that are essential for a modern appreciation of the subject have been included, but are introduced and developed in the simplest way possible.Undergraduates taking a first course on quantum mechanics will find this text an invaluable introduction to the field and help prepare them for more advanced courses.
Introduction to Quantum Mechanics: · Starts from basics, reviewing relevant concepts of classical physics where needed. … |

8 | D. Griffiths | |

Review; Written by the author of the best-selling E & M text, this text is designed to teach students how to DO quantum mechanics. Part I covers the basic theory; Part II develops approximation schemes and real-world applications. *offers an unusually readable, consistent, and honest discussion of fundamental ideas. *some books allow students to assume that there are no conceptual problems with quantum mechanics, or conceal the interpretative difficulties with abstract language and dogmatic assertions. Griffiths acknowledges, from the beginning, both the difficulty in understanding quantum mechanics, and the controversy surrounding some of the fundamental ideas. *avoids a now-unnecessary historical discussion. Starts immediately with quantum mechanics – the Schr?dinger equation, and its statistical interpretation, is introduced on the second page. *explores several exceptionally up-to-date topics – e.g., adiabatic processes (and a treatment of Berrys phase); Bells theorem; the quantum Zeno paradox; and, where appropriate, cites recent papers in the accessible literature. *contains 315 graded problems offering a wide range of difficulty. **essential, “confidence builders”; ***more difficult and less crucial; ****most difficult – an hour or more; *no stars: good exercise but not essential or difficult. |

9 | B. Fain | Irreversibility in Quantum Mechanics |

Review; This book presents a unified theoretical and conceptual framework for the description of various irreversible phenomena in quantum mechanics. The general theory of irreversible processes is applied to specific physical models and situations such as energy and electron transfer processes, tunnelling in condensed media, superradiance, etc. Special attention is given to memory effects in relaxation processes and dissipationless states in dissipative systems. A separate chapter is devoted to the problem of irreversibility in quantum measurements. Audience: This book will be of interest to postgraduate students and specialists in quantum mechanics, statistical physics, and chemical physics. The work may serve as a complementary text for quantum mechanics courses. |

12 | D. Bes | Quantum mechanics a modern concise introductory course |

Review;Starting from basic principles, the book systematically covers both Heisenberg and Schr?dinger realizations of quantum mechanics (in this order). The material traditionally presented in quantum textbooks is illustrated with applications which are (or will become) cornerstones of future technologies. The emphasis in the matrix formulation focus the attention on the spin, the most important quantum observable, and paves the way to chapters on quantum information (including crytography, teleportation and computation), on recent tests of quantum physics and on decoherence. Additions and changes found in the second edition include; a more friendly presentation to Hilbert spaces; more practical applications e.g. scanning tunneling microscope (potential…
From reviews of the first edition: “Daniel Bes clearly understands that accuracy, clarity and brevity … has therefore made a careful selection of the topics to make an accessible concise book on quantum mechanics for a modern introductory undergraduate course… The claims that this is a modern textbook are well justified by the inclusion of … the flow of the main ideas is not unbalanced by laborious detail.” Contemporary Physics “It is concise but covers an extraordinary range of topics, from those typically found in traditional quantum mechanics textbooks … All this is illustrated with examples that cover a wide range … provides a large amount of information per page and the selection, extension and balance of topics is adequate for an introductory course.” Mathematical Reviews |

15 | J.J. Sakurai | Modern Quantum Mechanics |

Review; This best-selling classic provides a graduate-level, non-historical, modern introduction of quantum mechanical concepts. The author, J. J. Sakurai, was a renowned theorist in particle theory. This revision by Jim Napolitano retains the original material and adds topics that extend the text’s usefulness into the 21st century. The introduction of new material, and modification of existing material, appears in a way that better prepares the student for the next course in quantum field theory. You will still find such classic developments as neutron interferometer experiments, Feynman path integrals, correlation measurements, and Bell’s inequality. The style and treatment of topics is now more consistent across chapters. The Second Edition has been updated for currency and consistency across all topics and has been checked for the right amount of mathematical rigor. |
