Quantum Mechanics I: The Fundamentals provides a graduate-level account of the behavior of matter and energy at the molecular, atomic, nuclear, and sub-nuclear levels. It covers basic concepts, mathematical formalism, and applications to physically important systems.

The text addresses many topics not typically found in books at this level, including:

Bound state solutions of quantum pendulumPoeschl-Teller potentialSolutions of classical counterpart of quantum mechanical systemsA criterion for bound stateScattering from a locally periodic potential and reflection-less potentialModified Heisenberg relationWave packet revival and its dynamicsHydrogen atom in D-dimensionAlternate perturbation theoriesAn asymptotic method for slowly varying potentialsKlein paradox, Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox, and Bell's theorem Numerical methods for quantum systems

A collection of problems at the end of each chapter develops students' understanding of both basic concepts and the application of theory to various physically important systems. This book, along with the authors' follow-up Quantum Mechanics II: Advanced Topics, provides students with a broad, up-to-date introduction to quantum mechanics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The first volume of this course of quantum mechanics contains basic concepts of quantum mechanics, mathematical formalism, and a wide range of applications to physically important systems. The problems concerning the considered subject are included at the end of each chapter. The textbook is intended for graduate students and also as a reference book. Doubtless advantage of this tutorial is the discussion of such mysteries in quantum mechanics as the collapse of the wave function, Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox, hidden variables, the paradox of Schroedinger cat, and Bell's theorem. It should be noted the presence of numerical methods in quantum mechanics."
-Zentralblatt MATH 1318

"... excellent, up-to-date ... can be used as either a two-to-three-semester graduate text or as a standalone reference book. Quantum Mechanics I: The Fundamentals covers the canonical basics and Quantum Mechanics II: Advanced Topics covers a range of modern developments from introductory quantum field theory through quantum information theory and other quantum technologies, such as quantum metrology and imaging, that are not discussed in other sources ... I recommend this set highly."
-Dr. Jonathan P. Dowling, Hearne Professor of Theoretical Physics and Co-Director, Hearne Institute for Theoretical Physics, Louisiana State University, and Author of Schroedinger's Killer App: Race to Build the World's First Quantum Computer

"Be assured ... these two books by Rajasekar and Velusamy will definitely tell you how to do quantum mechanics."
-Dr. K.P.N. Murthy, Professor, School of Physics, and Director, Centre for Integrated Studies, University of Hyderabad

Vol I quote: "The real strength of this book lies in its scope. Each individual chapter covers the fundamentals of a topic and acts as an excellent reference for quantum researchers....I will certainly ensure that a copy remains on my bookshelf, for when I have a query on any fundamental aspect of quantum mechanics."
-Contemporary Physics (Nov 2017), review by Prof. Thomas Collier, University of Exeter

Vol II quote: "I found digesting the latter part of this book a most enjoyable experience. Indeed, the final chapters on broad applications of advanced quantum mechanics are entertaining to read and refrain from delving too deeply into the intricacies. The reader is given an enticing glimpse of the research directions one might apply the knowledge of quantum mechanics presented over the two volumes. As with the first volume, I will keep this book close at hand for when I require a concise and mathematically rich guide to these advanced topics of quantum mechanics."
