A revision of a successful junior/senior level text, this introduction to elementary quantum mechanics clearly explains the properties of the most important quantum systems. Emphasizes the applications of theory, and contains new material on particle physics, electron-positron annihilation in solids and the Mossbauer effect. Includes new appendices on such topics as crystallography, Fourier Integral Description of a Wave Group, and Time-Independent Perturbation Theory.

Review: Quantum Physics of Atoms, Molecules, Solids, Nuclei, and Particles

User Review  - Chris Walker - Goodreads

A great into to quantum physics. Eisberg follows the path of discovery of the original scientists from experimental results to mathematical theories. This book can feel more like a novel than a textbook at times, and that's great. Read full review

User Review  - Bill - Goodreads

I liked this one the best of all my undergraduate textbooks in quantum physics. The exposition is relatively prose-heavy, but it never gets tedious, and the ideas are clear. Read full review
