Item description for The Quantum Mechanics Solver: How to Apply Quantum Theory to Modern Physics by Jean-Louis Basdevant...
The Quantum Mechanics Solver uniquely illustrates the application of quantum mechanical concepts to various fields of modern physics. It aims at encouraging the reader to apply quantum mechanics to research problems in fields such as molecular physics, condensed matter physics or laser physics. Advanced undergraduates and graduate students will find a rich and challenging source of material for further exploration. This book consists of a series of problems concerning present-day experimental or theoretical questions on quantum mechanics. All of these problems are based on actual physical examples, even if sometimes the mathematical structure of the models under consideration is simplified intentionally in order to get hold of the physics more rapidly. The new edition features new themes, such as the progress in measuring neutrino oscillations, quantum boxes, the quantum thermometer etc. Secondly, it includes a brief summary on the basics of quantum mechanics and the formalism we use. Finally, the problems under three main themes: Elementary Particles, Nuclei and Atoms; Quantum Entanglement and Measurement; and Complex Systems.

Collection of Solved Problems in Quantum Mechanics Jul 14, 2008
This book has quite a comprehensive collection of solved problems in quantum mechanics. It is a suitable supplement to the usual texts on quantum mechanics such as those by Shankar, Griffiths, Sakurai, etc. Another similar useful book on solved problems is: Problems and Solutions on Quantum Mechanics by Yung-Kuo Lim.
Extremely useful Jan 9, 2004
If you are studying quantum mechanics using popular textbooks such as Griffiths', Shankar's, Liboff, Sakurai, Ballentine, ... you must have this problem book on shelf. You can look up ALMOST every typical problem that appeared on qualifying exams--almost any hard problem you don't know how to solve. I personally find this very very helpful. Hihgly recommended!
