Hagelstein (Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) introduces beginning graduate students in engineering to fundamental concepts of quantum physics and their application to electrical engineering, applied physics, and materials science. Coverage is not intended to be all-encompassing, but rather focuses on areas of specific interest to engineering students, with chapters progressing from foundations to the time-dependent Schrödinger equation and statistical mechanics. Theoretical results are supported with examples of real-world systems and applications, and worked examples and chapter problems are included. Twenty-two mathematical appendices are included.
