John Wiley Sons, 1969. - 283p. This volume is the result of a one-semester course in quantum mechanics that I taught at the University of Virginia. The course was taken by physics majors in their senior year and by graduate students from other departments, mainly electrical engineering and astronomy. The material presented somewhat exceeds what can be taught during one semester. When presented in class the chapter on scattering could obviously be left out. If scattering theory is desired, one could leave out Chapters 11 and 12. The basic ideas, theorems, and techniques of quantum mechanics are developed along familiar lines. They are applied, whenever possible, to real physical systems which, at the level of this book, necessitates an emphasis on the physics of the hydrogenlike atoms. A look at the table of contents shows that problems related to the hyperfine structure of hydrogen and positronium have been given much more emphasis than is customary in texts at this level. This has been done for the following reason: the hyperfine structure and its Zeeman effect offer a unique opportunity to demonstrate stationary and time-dependent perturbation theory and such abstract concepts as the mixing of states in actual physical systems of current research interest, yet with a minimum of mathematical difficulties. Matrices can be diagonalized exactly, summations usually run only over two values of the summation index, and orthogonality and normalization do not require integration over all space but are immediately obvious from the properties of the two dimensional state vectors involved. lowe a debt of gratitude to Professor J. Eisenberg for numerous enlightening and enjoyable discussions. KLAUS Ziock
