Applied Quantum Mechanics

 

 

Book Description
This book takes quantum mechanics from the theory books into the real world. Using practical examples throughout, Levi's approach engages and motivates. After a review of classical mechanics and electromagnetics, the book proceeds through primary principles and Schrödinger's equation to more advanced topics, including scattering, eigenstates, the harmonic oscillator and time-dependent perturbation theory, and the laser.  Quantum mechanics is usually thought of as being a difficult subject to master - this book sets out to prove it doesn't need to be.  Example problems, exams, and MATLAB code are available at:
