Inspired by the work of Nobel laureate Julian Schwinger, this book provides a clear, extensively illustrated introduction to quantum mechanics. It uses a combined approach of wave mechanics and spin analysis to explain the concepts of particle physics. The author#xE2;#xAC;"s pedagogical approach uses special process diagrams as tools for visualizing the states and operators as well as for illustrating ways to compute amplitudes for quantum mechanical processes. Problem sets build from the text and reinforce key principles. The first part of the book covers all the essential principles for the development of quantum mechanics. The second half focuses on quantum particles.
