Levi's unique, practical approach engages the reader and keeps them motivated with numerous illustrations, exercises and worked solutions. Starting with some scene setting revision material on classical mechanics and electromagnetics, Levi takes the reader from first principles and Schrd̲inger's equation on to more advanced topics including scattering, eigenstates, the harmonic oscillator and time dependent perturbation theory. A CD-ROM is included which contains MATLAB source code to support the text. Quantum mechanics is usually thought of as being a difficult subject to master - this book sets out to prove it doesn't need to be."@en ;
