Designed for students familiar with abstract mathematical concepts but possessing little knowledge of physics, this graduate-level text was written by a member of the distinguished National Academy of Science. It opens with chapters on classical mechanics and proceeds to a survey of quantum mechanics; topics include the quantum-mechanical substitute for phase space; quantum dynamics and the Schrödinger equation; generalized coordinates; linear systems and the quantization of the electromagnetic field; and quantum-statistical mechanics. The final section on group theory and quantum mechanics of the atom explores spherical symmetry and spin, the n-electron atom and the Pauli exclusion principle, and other subjects. 1963 ed.
