Description: Appropriate for a junior/senior-level undergraduate course in Quantum Physics; requires a background in freshman and sophomore physics (mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and thermodynamics), and a solid working knowledge of calculus and algebra. Sharing a passion and wonderment for the field that makes it a real joy to read, this book provides a uniquely engaging, in-depth introduction to the concepts of quantum physics and their practical implementation. Written in an informal yet substantive style, it is filled with clear, thorough explanations that help students develop insight into physical ideas and master techniques of problem-solving using quantum mechanics.
