Suitable for undergraduate and graduate students of physics, the well-written, clear, and rigorous text was written by two of the nations leading authorities on quantum physics. A solid foundation in quantum mechanics and atomic physics is assumed.Early chapters provide background in the mathematical treatment and particular properties of ordinary wave motion that also apply to particle motion. The close relation of quantum theory to physical optics is stressed. Subsequent sections emphasize the physical consequences of a wave theory of material properties, and they offer extensive applications in atomic physics, nuclear physics, solid state physics, and diatomic molecules. Four helpful Appendixes supplement the text. Quantum Mechanics with Applications (Dover Books on Physics) by David B. Beard
