Quantum Theory: A Treatise in Three Volumes, I: Elements focuses on the principles, methodologies, and approaches involved in quantum theory, including quantum mechanics, linear combinations, collisions, and transitions. The selection first elaborates on the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics, exactly soluble bound state problems, and continuum. Discussions focus on delta function normalization, spherically symmetric potentials, rectangular potential wells, harmonic oscillators, spherically symmetrical potentials, Coulomb potential, axiomatic basis, consequences of first three postulates, and time-dependent states. The text then examines the stationary perturbation theory, variational method, and the asymptotic approximation method. Concerns cover the application of the asymptotic approximation method to potential barrier problems, method of linear combinations, lower bounds for the ground state eigenenergy, relative degeneracy, and degenerate case. The publication examines the theory of collisions and transitions, including the scattering of identical particles, Coulomb field, methods of determining scattering phases, persistent perturbations, and adiabatic approximation. The selection is a valuable source of information for researchers interested in quantum theory.… (more)

I picked this up from the library as a reference for a course covering quantum mechanics, and while it's old, the content is still relevant. It's not terribly easy to follow, but it's still a very useful reference. ( )
