A Student’s Guide to the Schrödinger Equation (Student’s Guides)

A Student’s Guide to the Schrödinger Equation (Student’s Guides)

Quantum mechanics is a hugely important topic in science and engineering, but many students struggle to understand the abstract mathematical techniques used to solve the Schrödinger equation and to analyze the resulting wave functions. Retaining the popular approach used in Fleisch’s other Student’s Guides, this friendly resource uses plain language to provide detailed explanations of the fundamental concepts and mathematical techniques underlying the Schrödinger equation in quantum mechanics. It addresses in a clear and intuitive way the problems students find most troublesome. Each chapter includes several homework problems with fully worked solutions. A companion website hosts additional resources, including a helpful glossary, Matlab code for creating key simulations, revision quizzes and a series of videos in which the author explains the most important concepts from each section of the book.

Editorial Reviews


?? this slender paperback attempts to explicate the somewhat difficult concepts involved in understanding the meaning of the equation. The author intends that the guide serve as an ancillary resource to any of the many textbooks on quantum mechanics. The difficulties associated with this subject arise from the demanding mathematical formalism required and the conceptualization of the solutions to Schrödinger’s equation. The book succeeds in explicating the arcane forms used for writing and solving Schrödinger’s equation, from operators to matrices to Dirac notations ? All discussions are related to a single dimension of space and the time-independent equation. Each chapter includes problems and features many helpful diagrams. Additional features are available to students on the supporting website, including complete solutions to problems and simulations. The book can serve, as intended, as an excellent supplement to a standard text.? N. Sadanand, Choice –This text refers to the paperback edition.
