LEARN QUANTUM MECHANICS AT WARP SPEED!
Now anyone can master the basics of quantum mechanics -- without formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In Quantum Mechanics Demystified, physicist (and student-savvy author) David McMahon provides an effective and illuminating way to learn the essentials of quantum mechanics.

With Quantum Mechanics Demystified, you master the subject one step at a time -- at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide is filled with solved examples throughout, and offers problems to try at the end of each chapter to pinpoint weaknesses. A final exam serves to reinforce concepts covered in the entire book.

This fast and entertaining self-teaching course makes it much easier to --

  • Master serious quantum mechanics in easy-to-follow steps
  • Cut through the jargon and learn how to do quantum mechanics using worked examples
  • Reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses with questions at the end of each chapter and a comprehensive final exam
  • Learn about Schrodinger's equation, one dimensional scattering, Hilbert space, and the density operator
  • Find extensive explanations of spin and angular momentum, vector spaces, matrix mechanics, the harmonic oscillator, and the hydrogen atom
  • Perform better on qualifying or placement exams
  • Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

Clear enough for beginners but challenging enough for those who already know something about advanced physics, Quantum Mechanics Demystified is the best self-teaching tool you can find!
