0 Reviews
The first section presents detailed and thorough coverage of integral quantum mechanics and scattering. In the second section, an operational treatment of relativistic quantum mechanics is provided. Quantum fields are introduced in the third part, using perturbation theory to emphasize the connections with familiar quantum mechanics, and the field theory is illustrated with examples of actual physical processes.

About the author (1990)

Rubin H. Landau, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Physics at Oregon State University in Corvallis. He teaches courses in computational physics, helps direct the Northwest Alliance for Computational Science and Engineering, and has been using computers in theoretical physics research for the past 30 years. The author of more than 70 refereed publications, he has also authored the books Quantum Mechanics II, A Scientist's and Engineer's Guide to Workstations and Supercomputers, and the first edition of Computational Physics, all of them available from Wiley.

Manuel J. Paez;, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia. He teaches courses in computational physics, programming, and nuclear physics. He and Professor Landau have conducted pioneering computational investigations in the interactions of mesons and nucleons with nuclei.

Cristian C. Bordeianu received his physics degree from Bucharest University, Romania, and his M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from "A.I.Cuza" University in Jassy, Romania. He is currently completing work towards a Ph.D. degree in Nuclear Physics at Bucharest University. He has over ten years of experience in developing Computational Physics educational software for high schools and University curricula. His current research interests include chaotic dynamics in nuclear multifragmentation and plasma of quarks and gluons.
