Quantum Mechanics, Third Edition: Non-relativistic Theory is devoted to non-relativistic quantum mechanics. The theory of the addition of angular momenta, collision theory, and the theory of symmetry are examined, together with spin, nuclear structure, motion in a magnetic field, and diatomic and polyatomic molecules. This book is comprised of 18 chapters and begins with an introduction to the basic concepts of quantum mechanics, with emphasis on the uncertainty principle, the principle of superposition, and operators, as well as the continuous spectrum and the wave function. The following chapters explore energy and momentum; Schrödinger's equation; angular momentum; and motion in a centrally symmetric field and in a magnetic field. Perturbation theory, spin, and the properties of quasi-classical systems are also considered. The remaining chapters deal with the identity of particles, atoms, and diatomic and polyatomic molecules. The final two chapters describe elastic and inelastic collisions. This monograph will be a valuable source of information for physicists.

Rapid advances in quantum optics, atomic physics, particle physics and other areas have been driven by fantastic progress in instrumentation (especially lasers) and computing technology as well as by the ever-increasing emphasis on symmetry and information concepts-requiring that all physicists receive a thorough grounding in quantum mechanics. This book provides a carefully structured and complete exposition of quantum mechanics and illustrates the common threads linking many different phenomena and subfields of physics.

This landmark among mathematics texts applies group theory to quantum mechanics, first covering unitary geometry, quantum theory, groups and their representations, then applications themselves — rotation, Lorentz, permutation groups, symmetric permutation groups, and the algebra of symmetric transformations.

"The book begins with a preview of the conceptual problem peculiar to quantum mechanics. The introductory chapter also contains a formulation of the basic laws of motion in quantum mechanics in terms of the Feynman postulates. Chapter 2 contains a detailed exposition of the linear vector spaces and representation theory. In Chapter 3 the basic principles of quantum mechanics are introduced in the form of a number of postulates. The Schrodinger, the Heisenberg and the Interaction pictures of time development form the subject matter of Chapter 4. An indepth study of angular momentum theory (Chapter 5) is followed by a brief account of space-time symmetries including time reversal invariance (Chapter 6). Scattering theory (Chapter 7), approximation methods for stationary as well as time-dependent problems (Chapter 8) and Identical Particles (Chapter 9) receive adequate treatment. The Dirac, the Klein-Gordon and the Weyl equations are discussed extensively in Chapter 10. Chapter 11 treats canonical quantization of both non-relativistic and relativistic fields; topics covered include the natural system of units, the Dyson and the Wick chronological products, normal products, Wick's theorem and the Feynman diagrams. The last Chapter (12) discusses in detail the Interpretational Problem in quantum mechanics. The EPR paradox, the Copenhagen and the Ensemble interpretations, hidden-variable theories, Neumann's and Bell's theorems and Bell's inequality are among the topics discussed.".
