Item description for Quantum Mechanics by Jean-Louis Basdevant...
This course on quantum mechanics offers a fresh and modern approach to the field. It is a textbook on the principles of the theory, its mathematical framework and its first applications. It consistently refers to modern and practical developments, such as tunneling microscopy, quantum information, Bell inequalities, quantum cryptography, Bose-Einstein condensation and quantum astrophysics. The book contains 92 exercises with their solutions.
The CD-ROM contains outstanding and "easy access" Java-based simulations, which illustratively help the user to better understand how the theory actually operates. It also contains a variety of links where one can discover updated applications and further readings. A complementary book The Quantum Mechanics Solver guides students to applying the theory developed here to research problems in atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter and laser physics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quantum Mechanics?
Very clear book on quantum mechanics Jul 14, 2008
This is a very clear and understandable book on quantum mechanics as compared to classics by Claude Cohen Tannoudji or Dirac. There are also quite a few informative historical tidbits and interesting applications. The companion volume Quantum Mechanics Solver is also good for learning how to solve practical problems in quantum mechanics.
Very Clear Mar 11, 2005
This is one of the best books I read about the topic. I don't have much time to write now. Just don't take too much care about what engineers say about books for physicists! By the way, the book is rich in examples and very useful exercises plus solutions.
The Worst book ever Mar 8, 2004
This book has nothing. It's crap. I'm in my 4th year of electrical engineerings and this is the worst book I've read. Actually, I thought no book could be this bad! Just 1 example would have made this book better.
