Quantum Mechanics for Scientists and Engineers by David A. B. Miller

By David A. B. Miller

if you want a booklet that relates the center ideas of quantum mechanics to fashionable functions in engineering, physics, and nanotechnology, this can be it. scholars will enjoy the book's utilized emphasis, which illustrates theoretical options with examples of nanostructured fabrics, optics, and semiconductor units. the numerous labored examples and greater than a hundred and sixty homework difficulties aid scholars to challenge resolve and to perform purposes of thought. with out assuming a previous wisdom of high-level physics or classical mechanics, the textual content introduces Schrodinger's equation, operators, and approximation equipment. structures, together with the hydrogen atom and crystalline fabrics, are analyzed intimately. extra complex matters, akin to density matrices, quantum optics, and quantum info, also are lined. functional purposes and algorithms for the computational research of easy buildings make this an amazing creation to quantum mechanics for college students of engineering, physics, nanotechnology, and different disciplines.

Quantum Mechanics in Chemistry (Dover Books on Chemistry)

Meant for graduate and complex undergraduate scholars, this article explores quantum mechanical recommendations from the point of view of chemistry and fabrics technological know-how. Dynamics, symmetry, and formalism are emphasised. An preliminary overview of simple techniques from introductory quantum mechanics is by means of chapters reading symmetry, rotations, and angular momentum addition.

Quantum Mind and Social Science: Unifying Physical and Social Ontology

There's an underlying assumption within the social sciences that recognition and social lifestyles are eventually classical physical/material phenomena. during this groundbreaking e-book, Alexander Wendt demanding situations this assumption by means of offering that awareness is, actually, a macroscopic quantum mechanical phenomenon.

Back-of-the-Envelope Quantum Mechanics:With Extensions to Many-Body Systems and Integrable PDEs

Dimensional and order-of-magnitude estimates are practiced through nearly everyone yet taught virtually nowhere. whilst physics scholars interact of their first theoretical study undertaking, they quickly study that precisely solvable difficulties belong in simple terms to textbooks, that numerical versions are lengthy and source eating, and that “something else” is required to speedy achieve perception into the method they're going to examine.

Intersection Spaces, Spatial Homology Truncation, and String Theory (Lecture Notes in Mathematics)

Intersection cohomology assigns teams which fulfill a generalized kind of Poincaré duality over the rationals to a stratified singular house. This monograph introduces a style that assigns to yes sessions of stratified areas mobile complexes, known as intersection areas, whoseordinary rational homology satisfies generalized Poincaré duality.
