Quantum mechanics for pedestrians. 2, Applications and extensions / Jochen Pade

By: Pade, Jochen [author]Contributor(s): Ohio Library and Information NetworkMaterial type: TextTextLanguage: English Original language: German Series: Undergraduate lecture notes in physicsPublisher: Cham : Springer, 2018Edition: Second editionDescription: 1 online resource (xxiii, 586 pages) : illustrations (some color)Content type: text Media type: computer Carrier type: online resourceISBN: 978-3-030-00467-5; 3030004678Other title: Applications and extensionsSubject(s): Quantum theoryGenre/Form: Electronic books DDC classification: 530.12 LOC classification: QC174.12Online resources: SpringerLink Connect to resource | SpringerLink Connect to resource | SpringerLink Connect to resource (off-campus) Summary: This book, the second in a two-volume set, provides an introduction to the basics of (mainly) non-relativistic quantum mechanics. While the first volume addresses the basic principles, this second volume discusses applications and extensions to more complex problems. In addition to topics dealt with in traditional quantum mechanics texts, such as symmetries or many-body problems, it also treats issues of current interest such as entanglement, Bell's inequality, decoherence and various aspects of quantum information in detail. Furthermore, questions concerning the basis of quantum mechanics and epistemological issues which are relevant e.g. to the realism debate are discussed explicitly. A chapter on the interpretations of quantum mechanics rounds out the book. Readers are introduced to the requisite mathematical tools step by step. In the appendix, the most relevant mathematics is compiled in compact form, and more advanced topics such as the Lenz vector, Hardy's experiment and Shor's algorithm are treated in more detail. As an essential aid to learning and teaching, 130 exercises are included, most of them with solutions. This revised second edition is expanded by an introduction into some ideas and problems of relativistic quantum mechanics. In this second volume, an overview of quantum field theory is given and basic conceptions of quantum electrodynamics are treated in some detail
