Book Detail Page

written by John Townsend
published by the University Science Books
This textbook, unlike most others in the topic, introduces the basic quantum concepts using spin, rather than starting from wave mechanics.  This grounding in quantum phenomena, rather than difficult mathematics, is then used to cover all the standard topics in quantum physics.  Relationships to experimental results are stressed.  An instructor's manual is available.
