The book presents basic concepts of Quantum Mechanics to the undergraduate and
postgraduate students at various colleges and universities. Starting from the preliminary
ideas related to quantum mechanics, a systematic and logical approach has been used in the
subsequent chapters, together with the inclusion of modern concepts such as field
quantization, Schrödinger’s cat problem, qubits and quantum computing. The approach is
conceptual and pedagogical and stress is given on using the Dirac notation.
