The book is written specifically as a textbook for the
undergraduates in physics. Students of engineering
and chemistry will also find this book very useful to
get a basic understanding of quantum mechanics.
It is an attempt to fill the gap between the available
Quantum Mechanics books which are written mainly
for the postgraduate students, and the ones on
modern physics, which give a rather incomplete
treatment of quantum mechanics leaving out many
mathematical and conceptual details.
The book is written in an easy-to-understand style so
that the student gets a good grasp of the funda-
mental principles as well as of basic mathematical
It starts with Planck's quantum hypothesis and takes
the student along gently through the new concepts and ideas, at a pace at which they feel comfortable
and can enjoy this wonderful subject.
A large number of solved problems, exercises and
review questions are given at the end of each
chapter, making the book self-sufficient in preparing
for the examination.
