 Publisher's Summary
 Quantum mechanics has evolved from a subject of study in pure physics to one with a wide range of applications in many diverse fields. The basic concepts of quantum mechanics are explained in this book in a concise and easytoread manner, leading toward applications in solidstate electronics and optics. Following a logical sequence, the book focuses on key ideas and is conceptually and mathematically selfcontained. The fundamental principles of quantum mechanics are illustrated by showing their application to systems such as the hydrogen atom, multielectron ions and atoms, the formation of simple organic molecules and crystalline solids of practical importance. It leads on from these basic concepts to discuss some of the most significant applications in semiconductor electronics and optics. Containing many homework problems, the book is suitable for seniorlevel undergraduate and graduatelevel students in electrical engineering, material sciences, applied physics and chemistry.
