Actually it's pretty much the standard alongside Cohen-Tannoudji for most physics undergraduates in Spain, in particular UCM. At my uni we used Cohen's but I do recall picking this up off the library shelf on some occasion.dextercioby said:so it's for a pretty selective audience.
Quantum Mechanics is a branch of physics that deals with the behavior of matter and energy at a very small scale, such as atoms and subatomic particles. It explains how these particles behave and interact with each other through the use of mathematical equations.
Galindo and Pascual are two Spanish physicists who co-authored the textbook "Quantum Mechanics" which is widely used as a reference in the study of this subject. They both have extensive expertise in the field of quantum mechanics and have made significant contributions to its development.
The textbook covers a wide range of topics including the wave nature of particles, the uncertainty principle, the Schrödinger equation, quantum states and operators, quantum measurement, and the principles of quantum mechanics.
The textbook is primarily aimed at graduate students and researchers in the field of physics. It assumes a basic understanding of mathematics, physics, and classical mechanics. Therefore, it may not be suitable for beginners unless they have a strong foundation in these subjects.
One of the key features of this textbook is its comprehensive and rigorous approach to explaining the principles and concepts of quantum mechanics. It also includes numerous exercises and worked examples to help readers better understand the material. Additionally, the authors provide a historical perspective on the development of quantum mechanics, giving readers a deeper understanding of the subject.
