Changes and additions to the new edition of this classic textbook include a new chapter on symmetries, new problems and examples, improved explanations, more numerical problems to be worked on a computer, new applications to solid state physics, and consolidated treatment of time-dependent potentials.
- Provides clear and accessible explanations of the foundations of quantum mechanics, using an attractive and informal style
- It is thorough, with an appropriate amount of mathematical rigor and a good variety of examples and problems
- Students emerge with a confident understanding of what the theory says and how to apply it, a solid foundation for more advanced work, and an appreciation for one of the greatest products of the human mind
About the Authors
David J. Griffiths received his B.A. (1964) and Ph.D. (1970) from Harvard University. He taught at Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, and Trinity College before joining the faculty at Reed College in 1978. In 2001–02 he was visiting Professor of Physics at the Five Colleges (University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Mount Holyoke, Smith, and Hampshire), and in the spring of 2007 he taught Electrodynamics at Stanford. He retired in 2009.
Darrell F. Schroeter is a condensed matter theorist. He received his B.A. (1995) from Reed College and his Ph.D. (2002) from Stanford University where he was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. Before joining the Reed College, Oregon, faculty in 2007, Schroeter taught at both Swarthmore College and Occidental College. His record of successful theoretical research with undergraduate students was recognized in 2011 when he was named as a KITP-Anacapa scholar.
