A unique introductory text on quantum mechanics, from basic principles to historical perspective. * Includes description of the historical developments that led to the discovery of QM, often left out of other textbooks. * Emphasizes basic concepts that were essential in this discovery, placing them in context and making them more understandable to students. * Written in an easy-to-understand style and assuming no prior knowledge of the topic, this book provides a solid foundation for future study of quantum chemistry. * Includes problem sets for student use.
Autorenporträt
HENDRIK F. HAMEKA is Professor of Theoretical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania. Originally trained as a theoretical physicist, he studied quantum mechanics under H. A. Kramers (who in turn had studied under Niels Bohr). This study sparked his interest in chemical applications of quantum mechanics, which subsequently became his principal research specialty. He has written four previous textbooks on this subject, the last of which was published by Wiley.
Rezensionen
"...the treatment of individual topics and concepts is very good and informative..." ( Journal of Chemical Education , January 2005)
"...this book serves as a skeletal summary of arguments presented in class..." ( CHOICE , October 2004)
