      The development of quantum mechanics in the first decades of the twentieth century came as a shock to many physicists. Today, despite the great successes of quantum mechanics, arguments continue about its meaning, and its future. 1. The first shock came as a challenge to the clear categories to which physicists by had become accustomed.   This book will tell you about the origin and development of quantum mechanics, about its new concepts. It will describe how the new theory deciphered the secrets of the structure of atoms, molecules, crystals, atomic nuclei, and how quantum mechanics is dealing with the problem of the most fundamental of all properties of matter - the interaction of particles and the relationships between.

    Appropriation by New Age thought. In the early s New Age culture began to incorporate ideas from quantum physics, beginning with books by Arthur Koestler, Lawrence LeShan, and others which suggested that purported parapsychological phenomena could be explained by quantum mechanics. Quantum weirdness isn't real – we've just got space and time all wrong Physicist Jim Al-Khalili on Leeds United, Einstein and quantum biology Schrödinger’s kittens: New thought experiment.

      This book will equip students to follow quantum-mechanical arguments in books and scientific papers, and to cope with simple cases. To bring the subject to life, the theory is applied to the all-important field of atomic physics. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics is assumed. Book Description. A Thorough Update of One of the Most Highly Regarded Textbooks on Quantum Mechanics. Continuing 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.

The "New Quantum Mechanics" was introduced a little after the "Old Quantum Mechanics" which was developed by Planck and Bohr.

This is when quantum mechanics became very confusing to people. In the old quantum theory, we could think about particles moving in normal ways. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Birtwistle, George. New quantum mechanics. Cambridge [Eng.] University Press, (OCoLC) Document Type.

Quantum mechanics (QM; also known as quantum physics or quantum theory), including quantum field theory, is a fundamental branch of physics concerned with processes involving, for example, atoms and photons.

In such processes, said to be quantized, the action has been observed to be only in integer multiples of the Planck constant. Quantum Mechanics by Thomas DeGrand The subject of most of this book is the quantum mechanics of systems which have a small number of degrees of freedom.

This book is a mix of descriptions of quantum mechanics itself, the general properties of systems described by quantum mechanics, and general techniques for describing their behavior. Messiah’s Quantum Mechanics is available via Dover now, and as such is very affordable.

It is a graduate-level book that is very complete. It is fairly old. In quantum mechanics, then, knowledge about the current dynamical state of a system is embodied in a set of quantum amplitudes.

In classical physics, by contrast, we can state with certainty which value we will measure, and we characterise the system’s current dynamical state by simply giving this value. Sean Carroll’s new book argues quantum physics leads to many worlds Something Deeply Hidden contends that all possible outcomes of quantum experiments do come true.

In addition to having a conversational tone, the page book provides graphics in order to give the reader a better understanding.

Quantum mechanics, also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a rather new field, only becoming commonly accepted in the early 20th century. We publish important works by Linus Pauling, Niels Bohr, Richard P. Feynman, and others on elementary quantum mechanics, group theory, nonlinear mechanics, quantum theory, and more.

Lecture Notes in Quantum Mechanics by Doron Cohen. This book covers the following topics: The classical description of a particle, Hilbert space formalism, Group theory, Lie algebra, The Green function approach, The evolution operator, Scattering theory, Quantum mechanics.

Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications provides a clear, balanced and modern introduction to the subject. Written with the student’s background and ability in mind the book takes an innovative approach to quantum mechanics by combining the essential elements of the theory with the practical applications: it is therefore both a textbook and a problem solving book in one self-contained Author: Nouredine Zettili.

George Birtwistle (–) published The New Quantum Mechanics in His stated aim was to give a detailed account of work which had brought the relatively new subject of quantum mechanics to the fore in the previous few by: No-Nonsense Quantum Mechanics is the most student-friendly book on Quantum Mechanics ever written.

Here’s why. First of all, the book is nothing like a formal university lecture. Instead, it’s like a casual conservation with a more experienced student. This also means that nothing is assumed to be “obvious” or “easy to see”. How the Hippies Saved Physics by David Kaiser is, as the title promises, a highly readable look at the role counterculture and "New Age" thinking played in sparking the renewed interest in quantum.

I think this is a very good introduction to philosophical foundations of quantum mechanics from a realist point of view. On the other hand, quantum foundations experts, anti-realists and those who do not like philosophy will not find much value in this book.
