This book is meant to be a text for a ?rst course in quantum physics. It is assumed that the student has had courses in Modern Physics and in mathematics through differential equations. The book is otherwise self-contained and does not rely on outside resources such as the internet to supplement the material. SI units are used throughoutexcept for those topics for which atomic units are especially convenient. It is our belief that for a physics major a quantum physics textbook should be more than a one- or two-semester acquaintance. Consequently, this book contains material that, while germane to the subject, the instructor might choose to omit because of time limitations. There are topics and examples included that are not normally covered in introductory textbooks. These topics are not necessarily too advanced, they are simply not usually covered. We have not, however, presumed to tell the instructor which topics must be included and which may be omitted. It is our intention that omitted subjects are available for future reference in a book that is already familiar to its owner. In short, it is our hope that the student will use the book as a reference after having completed the course. We have included at the end of most chapters a a€œRetrospectivea€ of the chapter. Thisis notmeanttobemerelya summary, but, rather, anoverviewoftheimportance ofthe material andits placein the contextofpreviousandforthcomingchapters.It is our belief that for a physics major a quantum physics textbook should be more than a one- or two-semester ... brief review of salient experiments and concepts that led to contemporary quantum physics (Chapter 1), begin solving problems.
