By R. Shankar

Reviews from the 1st Edition:

"An first-class textual content … The postulates of quantum mechanics and the mathematical underpinnings are mentioned in a transparent, succinct manner." (American Scientist)

"No topic how lightly one introduces scholars to the idea that of Dirac’s bras and kets, many are grew to become off. Shankar assaults the matter head-on within the first bankruptcy, and in a really casual type means that there's not anything to be apprehensive of." (Physics Bulletin)

Reviews of the second one Edition:

"This sizeable textual content of seven hundred and abnormal pages has certainly a superb get-up, is particularly verbal and expressive, and has widely labored out calculational details---all correct for a primary path. the fashion is conversational, extra like a hall speak or lecture notes, notwithstanding prepared as a textual content. … it'd be really beneficial to starting scholars and people in allied parts like quantum chemistry." (Mathematical Reviews)


R. Shankar has brought significant additions and up to date key shows during this moment variation of ideas of Quantum Mechanics. New positive aspects of this leading edge textual content contain a wholly rewritten mathematical advent, a dialogue of Time-reversal invariance, and huge insurance of quite a few direction integrals and their functions. extra highlights include:

- transparent, obtainable therapy of underlying mathematics

- A assessment of Newtonian, Lagrangian, and Hamiltonian mechanics

- scholar figuring out of quantum concept is more suitable by way of separate remedy of mathematical theorems and actual postulates

- Unsurpassed assurance of course integrals and their relevance in modern physics

The needful textual content for complex undergraduate- and graduate-level scholars, ideas of Quantum Mechanics, moment version is absolutely referenced and is supported by way of many routines and recommendations. The book’s self-contained chapters additionally make it appropriate for autonomous learn in addition to for classes in utilized disciplines.

2a) [11]. Carbon-containing species, once landing on the surface of a growing nanosheet, will rapidly move along the sheet surface, reach the upper edge, and covalently bond to the edge atoms. On the contrary, the carbon-containing species diffusing to the substrate surface can be re-evaporated and desorbed from the surface because of the weak adsorption to the substrate. 7 eV) for a carbon atom (from the growth species) on the graphene surface, could assist carbon atoms to migrate along the graphene surface, leading to a vertical growth.
