Quantum Theory (Dover Books on Physics)

David Bohm


This awesome textual content by means of David Bohm, previously Princeton college and Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Birkbeck university, collage of London, presents a formula of the quantum thought by way of qualitative and creative options that experience developed outdoor and past classical thought. even though it offers the most principles of quantum idea basically in nonmathematical phrases, it follows those with a vast diversity of particular functions which are labored out in substantial mathematical detail.
Addressed essentially to complex undergraduate scholars, the textual content starts with a learn of the actual formula of the quantum concept, from its foundation and early improvement via an research of wave vs. particle houses of subject. partly II, Professor Bohm addresses the mathematical formula of the quantum idea, studying wave features, operators, Schrödinger's equation, fluctuations, correlations, and eigenfunctions.
Part III takes up functions to uncomplicated structures and extra extensions of quantum thought formula, together with matrix formula and spin and angular momentum. elements IV and V discover the tools of approximate answer of Schrödinger's equation and the speculation of scattering. partly VI, the method of dimension is tested in addition to the connection among quantum and classical concepts.
Throughout the textual content, Professor Bohm areas robust emphasis on exhibiting how the quantum idea might be built in a ordinary approach, ranging from the formerly present classical concept and going step-by-step during the experimental evidence and theoretical traces of reasoning which resulted in alternative of the classical concept by way of the quantum theory.
