A Thorough Update of One of the Most Highly Regarded Textbooks on Quantum MechanicsContinuing to offer an exceptionally clear, up-to-date treatment of the subject, Quantum Mechanics, Sixth Edition explains the concepts of quantum mechanics for undergraduate students in physics and related disciplines and provides the foundation necessary for other specialized courses.

This sixth edition builds on its highly praised predecessors to make the text even more accessible to a wider audience.

It is now divided into five parts that separately cover broad topics suitable for any general course on quantum mechanics. New to the Sixth EditionThree chapters that review prerequisite physics and mathematics, laying out the notation, formalism, and physical basis necessary for the rest of the bookShort descriptions of numerous applications relevant to the physics discussed, giving students a brief look at what quantum mechanics has made possible industrially and scientificallyAdditional end-of-chapter problems with different ranges of difficulty This exemplary text shows students how cutting-edge theoretical topics are applied to a variety of areas, from elementary atomic physics and mathematics to angular momentum and time dependence to relativity and quantum computing.

Many examples and exercises illustrate the principles and test students' understanding.
