Description
Textbook describing the mathematical principles and physical ideas of quantum mechanics, providing a complete introductory course on spinless particles in one and two dimensions. Uses visualization techniques to introduce and illustrate the behavior of quantum-mechanical systems which cannot be gained by conventional methods. Despite the presentation of advanced topics, only an understanding of calculus is required. Accompanying CD-ROM provides digital movies, animated illustrations, and hundreds of Mathematica notebooks for the reader's experimentation. Contents
