Many books explore group theory’s connection with physics, but few of them offer an introductory approach. This text provides upperlevel undergraduate and graduate students with a foundation in problem solving by means of eigenfunction transformation properties. This study focuses on eigenvalue problems in which differential equations or boundaries are unaffected by certain rotations or translations. Its explanation of transformations induced in function space by rotations (or translations) in configuration space has numerous practical applications — not only to quantum mechanics but also to anyother eigenvalue problems, including those of vibrating systems (molecules or lattices) or waveguides. Points of special interest include the development of Schur's lemma, which features a proof illustrated with a symbolic diagram. The text places particular emphasis on the geometric representation of ideas: for instance, the similarity transformation is characterized as a rotation in multidimensional function space and the reduction is described in terms of mutual orthogonal spaces. General references provide suggestions for further study, citing works of particular clarity and readability. New Preface to the Dover Edition. Problems. List of Symbols. References Cited. Systematic Bibliography. 1965 edition.

Written by a renowned professor of physics, this introductory text is geared toward graduate students taking a year-long course in quantum mechanics in which the third quarter is devoted to relativistic wave equations and field theory. Difficult concepts are introduced gradually, and the theory is applied to physically interesting problems. After an introductory chapter on the formation of quantum mechanics, the treatment advances to examinations of the quantum theory of the free electromagnetic field, the interaction of radiation and matter, second quantization, the interaction of quantized fields, and quantum electrodynamics. Additional topics include the theory of beta decay, particles that interact among themselves, quasi particles in plasmas and metals, and the problem of infinities in quantum electrodynamics. The Appendix contains selected answers to problems that appear throughout the text.
