James E. House, “Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics, 3rd Edition”

Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics, Third Edition is a clear and detailed introduction to quantum mechanics and its applications in chemistry and physics. All required math is clearly explained, including intermediate steps in derivations, and concise review of the math is included in the text at appropriate points. Most of the elementary quantum mechanical models―including particles in boxes, rigid rotor, harmonic oscillator, barrier penetration, hydrogen atom―are clearly and completely presented. Applications of these models to selected “real world” topics are also included.

This new edition includes many new topics such as band theory and heat capacity of solids, spectroscopy of molecules and complexes (including applications to ligand field theory), and small molecules of astrophysical interest.

Accessible style and colorful illustrations make the content appropriate for professional researchers and students alike
Presents results of quantum mechanical calculations that can be performed with readily available software
Provides exceptionally clear discussions of spin-orbit coupling and group theory, and comprehensive coverage of barrier penetration (quantum mechanical tunneling) that touches upon hot topics, such as superconductivity and scanning tunneling microscopy
Problems given at the end of each chapter help students to master concepts
