Product Description

The Manchester Physics Series General Editors: D. J. Sandiford; F. Mandl; A. C. Phillips Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manchester Properties of Matter B. H. Flowers and E. Mendoza Optics Second Edition F. G. Smith and J. H. Thomson Statistical Physics Second Edition F. Mandl Electromagnetism Second Edition I. S. Grant and W. R. Phillips Statistics R. J. Barlow Solid State Physics Second Edition J. R. Hook and H. E. Hall Quantum Mechanics F. Mandl Particle Physics Second Edition B. R. Martin and G. Shaw The Physics of Stars Second Edition A. C. Phillips Computing for Scientists R. J. Barlow and A. R. Barnett

Quantum Mechanics aims to teach those parts of the subject which every physicist should know. The object is to display the inherent structure of quantum mechanics, concentrating on general principles and on methods of wide applicability without taking them to their full generality. This book will equip students to follow quantum-mechanical arguments in books and scientific papers, and to cope with simple cases. To bring the subject to life, the theory is applied to the all-important field of atomic physics. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics is assumed. However, it would help most readers to have met some elementary wave mechanics before. Primarily written for students, it should also be of interest to experimental research workers who require a good grasp of quantum mechanics without the full formalism needed by the professional theorist. Quantum Mechanics features:

  • A flow diagram allowing topics to be studied in different orders or omitted altogether.
  • Optional "starred" and highlighted sections containing more advanced and specialized material for the more ambitious reader.
  • Sets of problems at the end of each chapter to help student understanding. Hints and solutions to the problems are given at the end of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, though not for a beginner 22 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
First of all this is not suitable for beginners in quantum theory, who instead should look at QM by Davies and Betts for example, and perhaps an American-style general physics book for first years (eg. Serway or Young) before that. This book should then last to the end of an average degree. It is not the most stimulating of books - its style is rather dry and thick. Concepts aren't always well explained, and for that, more wordy clarifications and explanations might be found in Sara McMurry's book (which is probably better for the beginner also). However, it does go through all of the mathematical formulism, and admittedly does seem better now that I have finished and am looking back on it. Not a masterpiece, but one you may keep going back to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quantum Mechanics 17 April 2009
Format:Paperback
A thorough and wide-ranging text that complements Martin & Shaw's Particle Physics in the same series made more valuable by the revision questions with clear hints and solutions.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Guide to Quantum Mechanics 10 Dec 2013
By Bib
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book gives you all you will need to in order to have a solid understanding of quantum mechanics through your undergraduate career. It gives important background information on Dirac formulism, amongst other things. Whilst the subject matter may not be the most instantly accessible it gives you all the tools you need to understand it, provided that you engage with it. If you're studying QM at a undergraduate level, I highly recommend getting this as it will become your first point of reference when you're left confused, yet again, by a heavily accented and easily distracted lecturer.

5.0 out of 5 stars An undergraduate text by a great teacher 27 July 1998
By henrique fleming - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The book I am reviewing is F. Mandl's "Quantum Mechanics", from the celebrated Manchester Physics Series. These are books especially planned for undergraduates, so that they are not too long and have hints or solutions to almost all the (numerous) exercises. The author is a famous writer in science. He wrote, for instance, the first redable book on quantum electrodynamics (the "Mandl", as it was called), another volume of the Manchester Series, "Statistical Physics", one of the present favorite introductions to the same subject (with G. Shaw) and a wonderful Yellow Report from CERN on Symmetries, now unfortunately very hard to find. Mandl has the gift of anticipating doubts and of providing clear and direct answers. In a book of quantum mechanics there are traditional points where disasters frequently occur. One is the description of the continuous spectra, with the "box normalization". Mandl excells here. Other is the perturbatio! n theory of a degenerate level. Mandl's is the best treatment I've seen. As is usual in texts of this level, there is no Dirac equation. On the other hand, a chapter is devoted to Dirac's formalism, in terms of bras and kets. At the modern side, a very clear explanation of Bell's inequality, and problems connected to it, is given. To sum up, the whole text is sound and very clear. The exercise are good, and the hints most helpful. Excellent text.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mandl's quantum text 30 May 2010
By Greg Severn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This text is better than Griffith's text. It is succinct,
it says more in fewer pages, and the economy of expression does
not compromise in necessary depth for the introductory student.
The student leaves the shallows more quickly, and gets to
Bell's theorem more quickly too, on the other side. Lucid!
