Fundamental Quantum Mechanics for Engineers

This book is not intended to be an exercise in mathematical skills. Review questions are targeted towards understanding the ideas, with the mathematics as simple as possible. This document faces the very real conceptual problems of quantum mechanics headon, including the collapse of the wave function, the indeterminacy, the nonlocality, and the symmetrization requirements. Topics covered includes: Mathematical Prerequisites, Basic Ideas of Quantum Mechanics, Single-Particle Systems, Multiple-Particle Systems, The Hydrogen Molecule, Examples of Multiple-Particle Systems, Heavier Atoms, Time Evolution.
