Primarily intended for the undergraduate students of physics, the book, in its second edition, apprises the students with the fundamentals of quantum mechanics. While retaining the same flow of contents and distinguishing features of the previous edition, the book now encompasses a number of modifications and additions. The author sets out with Planck’s quantum hypothesis and takes the students along through the new concepts and ideas, providing an easy-to-understand description of core quantum concepts and basic mathematical structures. The fundamental principles and the mathematical formalism introduced are amply illustrated through a number of solved examples. Chapter-end exercises and review questions, generally designed as per the examination pattern, serve to reinforce the material learnt. Chapter-end summaries capture the key points discussed in the text. New to the Second Edition • Incorporates detailed historical introduction to quantum mechanics • Comprises new sections on Time Variation of the Expectation Value of An Observable and Ehrenfest’s Theorem in the respective chapter • Includes several new numerical problems as well as solutions/hints to the existing exercise problems
