Item description for Quantum Mechanics: An Introduction by Walter Greiner, Sharon Weinberger, Horace Gregory, Folger Shakespeare Library , Michael W. Doyle, A. Dold, F. Takens & B. Teissier...

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

Reviews - What do customers think about Quantum Mechanics: An Introduction?

One of the best Textbooks on non relativistic QM  Sep 17, 2000
I've read all the 3 Greiner's books concerning non relativistic Quantum Mechanics (and other on QFT). First I've to underline that you may find many text-errors in those books. (QM: an introduction, QM:Special Chapters, QM:Symmetries): for everybody who is a bit familiar with Mathematics this can not be a big problem. On the second hand, you have to read all the 3 Greiner's books on Q.M. to have a great overview on this matter: every mathematical part is essential but complete. One has to follow and understand most of the calculations inside: this is the only way, generally in Physics, to earn a good Mathematical level, and be able not to concentrate too much on Mathematics while trying to understand the Physics behind. As last point I've to underline that only by reading Greiner's "Relativistic Quantum Mechanics" book, one is able to understand the meaning of introducing Field Theory formalism in "Q.M.:Special Chapters" and will appreciate it a lot: in fact everything is going to be easier on the following matters; apart of this I think it's great to treat Statistical Mechanics with operators as soon as possible, as Greiner does in Q.M.:special chapters. Lot's of importance is given to symmetries and Group theory (Q.M:symmetries) as a modern point of view pretends.
