Quantum mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
188 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Beginning students of quantum mechanics frequently experience difficulties separating essential underlying principles from the specific examples to which these principles have been historically applied. NobelPrizewinner Claude CohenTannoudji and his colleagues have written this book to eliminate precisely these difficulties. Fourteen chapters provide a clarity of organization, careful attention to pedagogical details, and a wealth of topics and examples which make this work a textbook as well as a timeless reference, allowing to tailor courses to meet students' specific needs. Each chapter starts with a clear exposition of the problem which is then treated, and logically develops the physical and mathematical concept. These chapters emphasize the underlying principles of the material, undiluted by extensive references to applications and practical examples which are put into complementary sections. The book begins with a qualitative introduction to quantum mechanical ideas using simple optical analogies and continues with a systematic and thorough presentation of the mathematical tools and postulates of quantum mechanics as well as a discussion of their physical content. Applications follow, starting with the simplest ones like e.g. the harmonic oscillator, and becoming gradually more complicated (the hydrogen atom, approximation methods, etc.). The complementary sections each expand this basic knowledge, supplying a wide range of applications and related topics as well as detailed expositions of a large number of special problems and more advanced topics, integrated as an essential portion of the text

Traité de physique à l'usage des profanes by
Bernard Diu(
Book
)
7 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in French and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'auteur a voulu écrire un traité de physique accessible à tous. De la physique classique à la théorie quantique, il explique comment les physiciens ont construit le récit de la nature. Il permet de comprendre ce qu'est la physique, c'estàdire la mécanique, l'optique, l'électromagnétisme, la relativité et la mécanique quantique

Elementary principles in statistical mechanics, developed with especial reference to the rational foundation of thermodynamics by
J. Willard Gibbs(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written by J. Willard Gibbs, the most distinguished American mathematical physicist of the nineteenth century, this book was the first to bring together and arrange in logical order the works of Clausius, Maxwell, Boltzmann, and Gibbs himself. The lucid, advancedlevel text remains a valuable collection of fundamental equations and principles. Topics include the general problem and the fundamental equation of statistical mechanics, the canonical distribution of the average energy values in a canonical ensemble of systems, and formulas for evaluating important functions of the energies of a system. Additional discussions cover maximum and minimal properties of distribution in phase, a valuable comparison of statistical mechanics with thermodynamics, and many other subjects
