Victor Galitski, J. has extended the material with new problems particularly relevant to modern science. This book remarkably presents some 700+ original problems in quantum mechanics together with detailed solutions covering nearly 1000 pages on all aspects of quantum science. The material is largely new to the English-speaking audience. The problems have been collected over about 60 years, first by the lead author, the late Prof. Victor Galitski, Sr. Over the years, new problems were added and the material polished by Prof.

A series of seminal technological revolutions has led to a new generation of electronic devices miniaturized to such tiny scales where the strange laws of quantum physics come into play. There is no doubt that, unlike scientists and engineers of the past, technology leaders of the future will have to rely on quantum mechanics in their everyday work. This makes teaching and learning the subject of paramount importance for further progress. Mastering quantum physics is a very non-trivial task and its deep understanding can only be achieved through working out real-life problems and examples. It is notoriously difficult to come up with new quantum-mechanical problems that would be solvable with a pencil and paper, and within a finite amount of time. This book remarkably presents some 700+ original problems in quantum mechanics together with detailed solutions covering nearly 1000 pages on all aspects of quantum science. The material is largely new to the English-speaking audience. The problems have been collected over about 60 years, first by the lead author, the late Prof. Victor Galitski, Sr. Over the years, new problems were added and the material polished by Prof. Boris Karnakov. Finally, Prof. Victor Galitski, Jr., has extended the material with new problems particularly relevant to modern science.

This is an extraordinary book. It covers a wide range of topics in quantum mechanics with reasonable depth for any student exposed to the subject at a graduate level in physics. Each chapter is started with a brief summary highlighting key issues to be considered in problems that follow and their solutions. Problems are solved with reasonable detail, leaving to the reader intermediate steps. An aspect which I notice most valuable are actual numerical estimates prior, during, or at the end of the solutions. Quantum mechanics is not mere linear algebra or differential equations with given boundary conditions. Therefore, any physical model needs to be placed in context in order to gauge its merits and limits, a consideration which is well achieved by Galitski et al. I would not only recommend this book to students, but colleagues as well.

There are a number of older (now classic) quantum problem volumes, some available as Dover reprints very inexpensively. But none can even begin to compare to the currency and relevance of this fine collection. At nearly 900 pages, there really is NO relevant problem in QM that's not touched on here.

This volume will appeal to:

-- Job seekers expecting at least solution structure interview questions, which are very common today. No other book will bring you up to speed as quickly as this volume.

-- Students, researchers, physicists, professors, teachers, engineers... many others.

-- Science buffs who have autodidactically studied QM and are ready for the next step.

The foundation math in almost all of QM relies on Hermitian linear operators acting in Hilbert space on state vectors or wave functions. This wonderful volume begins with those operators, then offers numerous, detailed problems and solutions in specifically applied areas including motion, momentum, spin, spectrum states, wave packets, magnetic fields, adiabatics, potential barriers and probabilities, wavefunction stats, atomic and molecular models, collisions, radiation and scattering, Dirac, Klein-Gordon, photon emission, and much more.

Eg: "Find the ground term of an H ion by variational method, calculate the minimum energy, and then compare them to (given or observed) experimental values x/y/z. Using your results, is it possible to make any conclusions about the stability of the ion?"

As you can see, the problems aren't just integral jockeying, each one seeks to test deep insights into the nature of what solutions can and can't do within their own bounds. This is wonderful both didactically and for interviews, which tend to probe not just solving skills, but knowledge about why you're doing what you are, and it's value and limits.

I'm a mathematician and physicist who evaluates new technologies at payroy dot com to determine IP boundaries, and due to nano technology and miniaturization (we often see atom sized transistor proposals and postage size processors with a billion transistors in the design), QM is assuming more and more of a central role. Like our cousins over in biotech, who have to explain why no "side effects" were designed into biologicals, we often find that educating USPTO and the Federal Circuit ALJ is as important as having clearly defined prior art!

This volume is highly recommended. The solutions are far from just: here's the answer. They give many deep nuances that even the most experienced QM researcher will enjoy, including many practical applications and examples (in of course both prospective and current fields like quantum computing and diode displays). No one can really keep up with this whole field today to be very honest, and this volume does a great job of both breadth and depth, as a reference, review, and extremely utilitarian learning tool. I found NO issues with Russian translation, symbology, etc.-- Oxford did a great job of editing. I can't speak yet of accuracy vs. errors as we've only checked about 100 of the problems, which were flawless, but since they go back 60 years then forward to 2011, there is bound to be a variety of accuracy levels or newer methods. Will update this as we use daily.

This book will have no competition. It's absolutely unique. It contains by far world's largest collection of insightful and original quantum problems. But it's not just problems, the book has much more. If you are a researcher or student working on or studying quantum physics, you must have this book.
