Quantum Physics – Stephen Gasiorowicz – 3rd Edition


Gasiorowicz is a first-class researcher in , and in this work he presents the concepts and theory of quantum , since the publication of the first edition, more than 35 years ago, quantum physics has been one of the standard texts of for undergraduate physics .

It stands out for the clear and concise presentation of concepts, and a balance between theory and applications. In this third edition, the author has made changes based on the feeding of numerous teachers and students, to improve the strengths of the .
