Thornton (University of Virginia) and Rex (University of Puget Sound) provide a sound theoretical foundation in quantum theory for physics majors while at the same time emphasizing applications needed for engineering students. The text contains 250 questions and about 800 problems, 15% of which are new to this third edition. Many of this edition's 40 new examples give students practice with conceptual reasoning. Examples now feature a new Strategy step to help students identify the essential steps in problem-solving. Expanded material on nanotechnology and cosmology is new to this edition.
