Quantum Physics: Atoms, Molecules, Solids, Nuclei, and Particles – Robert Eisberg, Robert Resnick – 2nd Edition


A revision of a successful junior/senior level text, this introduction to elementary clearly explains the properties of the most important quantum systems.

Emphasizes the of theory, and contains new material on particle physics, electron-positron annihilation in solids and the Mossbauer effect.

Includes new appendices on such topics as crystallography, Integral Description of a Wave Group, and Time-Independent Perturbation Theory.
