The book is an introduction to quantum mechanics at a level suitable for the second year in a European university (junior or senior year in an American college). The matrix formulation of quantum mechanics is emphasized throughout, and the student is introduced to Dirac notation from the start. A number of major examples illustrate the workings of quantum mechanics. Several of these examples are taken from solid state physics, with the purpose of showing that quantum mechanics forms the common basis for understanding atoms, molecules and condensed matter. The book contains an introductory chapter which puts the concepts of quantum mechanics into a historical framework. The solid-state applications discussed in this text include the quantum Hall effect, spin waves, quantum wells and energy bands. Other examples feature the two-dimensional harmonic oscillator, coherent states, two-electron atoms, the ammonia molecule and the chemical bond. A large number of homework problems are included.

"... nice clear short first course, suitable for future users of quantum mechanics."Tania MonteiroNew Scientist, 1991"... there are many well structured and helpful worked examples and problems ... there is a wealth of useful physics for any reader from the able undergraduate to the university teacher."W GoughEur. J. Physics, 1992"... highly recommended to undergraduates as supplementary reading for related courses. In fact, if a paperback edition were to become available, then this book might be highly recommended as a permanent personal library acquisition!"K K LeePhysics in Canada, 1993"The matrix formulation of quantum mechanics is emphasized throughout, and the student is introduced to Dirac notation from the start. A number of major examples illustrate the workings of quantum mechanics."Mathematics Abstracts
