About this product
- DescriptionThis book provides the reader with a contemporary and comprehensive introduction to Quantum Mechanics. It is suitable for beginners as well as for more advanced university students. Quantum mechanics is presented in a pedagogical fashion, with a clear logical organization. The various concepts and methods are introduced first in elementary terms, and later developed into more precise formulations. Systematic studies of approximation methods and the discussion of a wide class of physical applications follow. Part I of the book, together with the opening sections of Part II, provide adequate material for an introductory course of one semester at most universities. The rest of the book might be used in an advanced course on Quantum Mechanics. The basic material is fairly standard, even though some discussions such as those on general systems with time-dependent Hamiltonians, on metastable systems, as well as the discussions in some of the Complement sections, may t be found in other textbooks. The book also contains many original observations or new ways of illustrating even well-kwn subjects. In fact, the authors wish to convey in this book the sense of wonder in the logical simplicity and at the same time the beauty of subtle and far-reaching consequences of Quantum Mechanics, to young physics students in particular. Problem sets are provided at the end of each chapter, to be solved either analytically or by numerical methods. The solutions to both types of problems are given as separate pdf files or as Mathematica tebooks (there are 88 of them), all together on a CD accompanying the textbook. The presence of such a collection of numerical analyses enriches the main text and is one of the characteristic features of the book. With the many interesting systems discussed, the book will also be a useful reference for researchers and teachers. It provides the reader with a unique, enjoyable and rather complete textbook of Quantum Mechanics, destined to set a new standard for many years to come.
- Author BiographyK. Konishi obtained his first degree at the Kyoto University, Kyoto, in 1969; and successively attended the graduate course at the Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, 1971-1974, obtaining the Diploma di Perfezionamento (Ph D) in 1974. He was awarded Ph D from the Kyoto University, in 1975. After a long term position at INFN, Pisa, he got a full professorship at University of Genova in 1987. In 1998 Konishi moved to Univ. of Pisa. In 2000 he was awarded the Nishina momerial prize, for his work on Konishi Anomaly . G. Paffuti obtained his degree at the University of Pisa in 1976 (laurea in fisica). He got an assistant professorship in 1980; and associate professorship in 1985, both in University of Pisa. Since 2002 he has been a full professor at University of Pisa. During 1985-1987 he was a fellow at CERN.
