Based on the argument that the needs of chemistry are distinctive, a mathematical structure of topics such as quantum mechanics, relativity theory, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, suiting the needs of chemistry, is outlined. The subject matter is arranged in a sequence that reveals the foundations and mathematical foundations of analytical mechanics and the relation of classical mechanics to relativity and quantum theory. The book’s distinguishing feature is the introduction of extended Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods that treat time as a transformable coordinate, rather than as the universal time parameter of traditional Newtonian - Analytical Mechanics for Relativity.

Norsen's book provides a gentle introduction to the foundations of quantum mechanics suitable for anyone who has taken an introductory course on the subject. The book fills a much needed void in standard university physic According to the physicist David Mermin, the orthodox (Copenhagen) interpretation of quantum mechanics is encapsulated by This book provides a knowledge of relativistic quantum mechanics, but not of quantummore» The topics covered form a foundation for a knowledge of modern relativistic quantum field theory, providing a comprehensive coverage with emphasis on the details of actual calculations rather than the phenomenology of the applications. «less

We expect any Ph.D. in physics to know quantum field theory and general relativity, and we expect a graduate program to offer courses on advanced topics like string theory or condensed matter physics (maybe even quantum information). But few programs offer a course on quantum :// Order Foundations of Quantum Theory ISBN @ € Qty: Order Ebook This volume provides a summary of the lectures presented at the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi" on the Foundations of Quantum Theory, organized by the Italian Physical Society in Varenna, Italy from July , in collaboration with the Wilhelm und Else
