Quantum Mechanics for Scientists and Engineers by David A. B. Miller
This book introduces quantum mechanics to scientists and engineers, It can be used as a text for junior undergraduates onwards through to graduate students and professionals.
The level and approach are aimed at anyone with a reasonable scientic or technical background looking for a solid but accessible introduction to the subject.
The coverage and depth are substantial enough for a rst quantum mechanics course for physicists At the same time, the level of required background in physics and mathematics.
has been kept to aminimum to suit those also from other science and engineering backgrounds.
If you need a book that relates the core principles of quantum mechanics to modern applications in engineering, physics, and nanotechnology, this is it.
Students will appreciate the book’s applied emphasis, which illustrates theoretical concepts with examples of nanostructured materials, optics, and semiconductor devices.
The many worked examples and more than 160 homework problems help students to problem solve and to practise applications of theory. Without assuming a prior knowledge of high-level physics or classical mechanics, the text introduces Schrödinger’s equation, operators, and approximation methods.
Systems, including the hydrogen atom and crystalline materials, are analyzed in detail. More advanced subjects, such as density matrices, quantum optics, and quantum information, are also covered.
Practical applications and algorithms for the computational analysis of simple structures make this an ideal introduction to quantum mechanics for students of engineering, physics, nanotechnology, and other disciplines.
