Concepts and Applications
- John McGervey, Case Western Reserve University
This textbook is useful for a senior-level course on quantum mechanics, which is taken by virtually all undergraduate physics majors. Also of interest to students in materials science or metallurgy (especially quantum statistics), chemistry (especially atomic, molecular and optical), and astronomy.

"Veteran instructor McGervey (Case Western Reserve Univ.) provides a thorough introduction to quantum mechanics...The treatment of the subject is...refreshing in the consistency with which McGervey emphasizes the experiments underlying the development of quantum theory and the degree to which he insists on treating advanced concepts in understandable prose to appeal to a students intuition....A useful resource for physical chemists and applied mathematicians."
"The author has generally struck a good balance between conceptual development and mathematical rigor. [In summary, this book,]because of its unique approach and the improvements over McGervey I, should find substantial use in a one-semester course on Quantum Mechanics at the junior/senior level."
