Description

Introduction to Quantum Mechanics provides a lucid, up-to-date introduction to the principles of quantum mechanics at the level of undergraduates and first-year graduate students in chemistry, materials science, biology and related fields. It shows how the fundamental concepts of quantum theory arose from classic experiments in physics and chemistry, and presents the quantum-mechanical foundations of modern techniques including molecular spectroscopy, lasers and NMR.

Blinder also discusses recent conceptual developments in quantum theory, including Schroedinger's Cat, the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen experiment, Bell's theorem and quantum computing.

Review quote

"Professor Blinder is highly respected and is confirmed by his production of a very good book... Blinder's book has a freshness, a modern approach and is very readable."
-Neil R. Kestner, Louisiana State University

"I like the book very much. It is clearly written, in a style that should be appealing to students. The figures are especially good, and well chosen to illustrate important concepts that are often discussed without illustration...I found the explanations in the main text to be excellent...I would strongly recommend the book ."
Doug Doren, University of Delaware

"...This is an excellent book to use to introduce Quantum Mechanics to the desired audience...The organisation and style of the book are such that a student would find it easy to read and follow the physical, chemical and mathematical principles under discussion."
-Jim McTavish, Liverpool John Moores University

"Introduction to Quantum Mechanics is probably suited as a graduate text for students outside chemistry who need to understand quantum mechanics without undertaking a full year of physical chemistry. In addition to mastering the mechanics, lucky readers of this book will explore the fascinating philosophical and metaphysical implications launched into popular culture the word, quantum.
