Quantum Mechanics by Gennaro Auletta. The important changes quantum mechanics has undergone in recent years are reflected in this new approach for students.
A aulettz narrative, and over worked problems lead the student ahletta experiment, through general principles of the theory, to modern applications. Stepping through results allows students to gain a thorough understanding. Starting with basic quantum mech The important changes quantum mechanics has undergone in recent years are reflected in this new approach for students. Starting with basic quantum mechanics, the book moves on to more advanced theory, followed by applications, perturbation methods and special fields, and ending with new developments in the field.
Historical, mathematical, and philosophical boxes guide the student through the theory. Unique to this textbook are chapters on measurement and quantum optics, both at the forefront of current research. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students will benefit from this new perspective on the fundamental physical paradigm and its applications.

Dec 11, Tom rated it it was ok Shelves: The selection of topics are diverse and modern but the presentation is not great. The book is more like a collection of disparate abstract formalisms and results, each of which you can probably find a aulftta presentation somewhere else.
Here is a sample of thoughts that I have while reading this book: Why is “Quantum tomography” in an entirely separate chapter? Why is there only homodyne measurements of t The selection of topics are diverse and modern but the presentation is not great.
Why is there only homodyne measurements of the Wigner function in “Quantum tomography” and no heterodyne measurements or general POVM? Why “Qubits” has its own section in “Quantum information and quantum computation” when they’re defined as nothing but two-level systems? Actually there is a deeper operational definition that can be given using Schumacher’s compression.
With so many topics that aulwtta book covers, it has auletya potential to bring them all together into a unified modern understanding of quantum mechanics.
But Auletta et al. Quantum Processes, Systems, and Information is much better at integrating advanced topics such as quletta information and quantum computing, POVM, quantum open systems, and thermodynamics to the core understanding of quantum mechanics.
The first two chapters of Quantum Measurement and Control provide a more complete framework for quantum measurements.
I remember finding original paper Auletta et al. And quantum optics are probably better presented in Curiously, these various topics do come together in Auletta’s interpretation of quantum mechanics in his book, Quantum Mechanics for Thinkers.
