With clear discussion and numerous problems, this text is the first to adequately and comprehensively cover all the subjects of quantum mechanics. It carefully and thoroughly discusses symmetries--especially rotation symmetry, transition theory, the theory of the quantized electromagnetic field, and relativistic wave equations. For physicists, engineers, and chemists.
