This book introduces quantum mechanics to
scientists and engineers. The level and approach are aimed at anyone
with a reasonable scientific or technical background looking for a solid
but accessible introduction to the subject. The coverage and depth are
substantial enough for a first quantum mechanics course for physicists.
At the same time, the level of required background in physics and
mathematics has been kept to a minimum to suit those from other science
and engineering backgrounds.
With the growing interest in
nanotechnology, quantum mechanics has recently become increasingly
important for an everwidening range of engineering disciplines, such as
electrical and mechanical engineering, and for subjects such as
materials science that underlie many modern devices.
