Written for a one-semester course, this book presents applied quantum mechanics with numerous solved application examples. The text begins with coverage of first principles and Schrödinger equation, and continues on to more advanced topics including scattering, eigenstates, the harmonic oscillator, and time-dependent perturbation theory. The revised second edition covers quantization of angular momentum and quantum communication, and problems and additional references are included.
MATLAB is used to solve real-world application examples. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB M-files is available for download.
