"This is a textbook addressed to students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. It has evolved from lectures given by the authors to students of physics and engineering. a ] each chapter is followed by a number of well-selected problems with solutions. The problems and solutions a ] are very helpful for students to become familiar with methods explained in the chapter for solving problems. a ] Appendices A-P contain information indispensable for the smooth reading and for the solution of the problems." (Valentin Zagrebnov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1059 (10), 2005)
"Ghatak (Indian Institute of Technology) and Lokanathan (Bangalore-Jawahar Lal Nehru Planetarium, India) discuss the full range of quantum mechanics an advanced undergraduate is expected to know, plus topics normally reserved for first-year graduate studies. a ] The strength of the book is in the applications; thus students will better understand how quantum mechanics is used by practicing scientists. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate and graduate students." (E. Kincanon, CHOICE, Vol. 42 (5), 2005)
"The most important fact about this book is the wonderful admixture of theory and applications. a ] The problems are treated at a level that can be understood by the novice student. The second noteworthy aspect of the book are the large number of worked problems a ] . There is plenty of material here for an instructor a ] . The book is a ] a reference book for working quantum physicists. Ita (TM)s strong points include clarity of presentation, lucidity, extensive figures/diagrams, and applications." (V.Lakshminarayanan, Foundations of Physics, Vol. 35 (6), 2005)
