Quantum Mechanics: An Introduction

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, Oct 4, 2000 - Science - 486 pages

Quantum Mechanics - An Introduction lays the foundations for the rest of the course on quantum mechanics, advanced quantum mechanics, and field theory. Starting from black-body radiation, the photoelectric effect, and wave-particle duality, Greiner goes on to discuss the uncertainty relations, spin, and many-body systems; he includes applications to the hydrogen atom and the Stern-Gerlach and Einstein-de Haas experiments. The mathematics of representation theory, S matrices, perturbation theory, eigenvalue problems, and hypergeometric differential equations are presented in detail, with 88 fully and carefully worked examples and exercises to consolidate the material. The text starts with the historical and phenomenological background and then carefully builds up the wave mechanical treatment of matter. This fourth edition includes improved explanatory remarks, a total of 88 fully worked examples, and more exercises
