**Description: **This book is designed to make accessible to nonspecialists the
still evolving concepts of quantum mechanics and the terminology in
which these are expressed. The opening chapters summarize
elementary concepts of twentieth century quantum mechanics and
describe the mathematical methods employed in the field, with clear
explanation of, for example, Hilbert space, complex variables,
complex vector spaces and Dirac notation, and the Heisenberg
uncertainty principle. After detailed discussion of the Schrödinger
equation, subsequent chapters focus on isotropic vectors, used to
construct spinors, and on conceptual problems associated with
measurement,...
