For more than 25 years, Alastair Rae's Quantum Mechanics has been one of the most highly regarded textbooks in this area. From elementary atomic physics and mathematics, to angular momentum and time dependence, to relativity and quantum computing, the text shows how cutting-edge research topics of quantum mechanics have been applied to various disciplines.
Retaining the clarity of its predecessors, this fifth edition presents revised and updated material throughout the text. It offers a clear exposition of fundamental ideas, additional worked examples of the application of quantum mechanics principles to a range of physical problems, and more information on modern quantum information technology. This text was one of the first to include a substantial discussion of the conceptual and philosophical implications of quantum mechanics, which has been revised and extended in the fifth edition. Other topics covered include one- and three-dimensional Schrödinger equations, angular momentum, time-independent perturbation theory, time dependence, scattering, and relativity.
Cementing its reputation as an exceptional introductory textbook, Quantum Mechanics, Fifth Edition fully covers the concepts of quantum mechanics taught in an undergraduate physics course and provides the foundation necessary for other specialized courses.

This text explains clearly and with the minimum of mathematics the quantum mechanics needed by physics undergraduates. It is aimed mainly at physics students who have finished the first year of their courses, but its easy-to-follow approach will appeal to any undergraduate following a quantum mechanics course.
It has been widely recommended as a course text for the last 12 years and this new edition brings the subjects covered right up-to-date - including an introduction to the de Broglie-Bohm hidden variable theory. Other changes include a discussion of the impressive new experiments that demonstrate neutron diffraction by macroscopic sized slits, a revised treatment of Clebsch-Gordan co-efficients and a fuller discussion of spontaneous emission in the chapter on time dependence.
