Schrodinger's
Kittens and the Search for Reality by John Gribbin, Mark
Chimsky (Editor)
Astrophysicist
John Gribbin first introduced the general public to the world of quantum
physics in 1984 with his book In Search of SchrÃ¶dinger's Cat. A dizzying,
counterintuitive domain, the quantum world is so strange that Richard
Feynman, the greatest physicist of his time, admitted, "nobody understands
quantum physics." Science has not stood still in the years since In Search
of SchrÃ¶dinger's Cat was written, and in this new book, Gribbin brings
us up to speed on the latest developments.

Scrooge's Cryptic Carol: Visions of Energy, Time, and
Quantum Nature by Robert Gilmore
Physicist
Robert Gilmore, author of the popular Alice in Quantumland and presents
a delightful takeoff on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, where the
three visitations represent Science Past, Science Present, and Science
Future. For everyone who wants a playful, painless, yet surprisingly sophisticated
introduction to the ideas of modern physics, this is a brilliant tour
de force and a charming read.

Alice
in Quantumland: An Allegory of Quantum Physics by Robert
Gilmore
Follow
the adventures of Alice in Quantumland--a whole new Wonderland smaller
than an atom--where Alice's strange encounters explore and explain complicated
components of quantum theory, including the Uncertainty Principle, wave
functions, the Pauli Principle, and much more.

Essential Quantum Physics by Peter Landshoff,
Allen Metherell (Contributor), Gareth Rees (Contributor)
A
first course on quantum mechanics describing simple applications to physical
phenomena that are of immediate and everyday interest such as transistors,
lasers, molecular binding, and new to this edition, magnetic resonance
imaging and alpha decay.

The
Ghost in the Atom: A Discussion of the Mysteries
of Quantum Physics by J.R. Brown (Editor), P. C. Davies
(Editor), J. Broown (Editor)
Nine
distinguished physicists consider the conceptual foundations of quantum
physics--its paradoxes as well as its profound implications for the theory
of nature--within a text based on a BBC radio documentary broadcast.

Quantum Mechanics by L. D. Landau
This
is the quantum mechanics volume of the famous Course in Theoretical Physics
written by legendary Soviet physicist Lev Landau. This book treats nonrelativistic
quantum mechanics in depth and breadth. Suitable for advanced undergraduate
in physics.

Statistical Physics Part I by L. D. Landau,
M. J. Kearsley (Translator), E. M. Lifshitz
Another
fine volume in Landau's Course in Theoretical Physics, this book covers
quantum and classical statistics and thermodymanics with depth and rigor.

Fundamentals
of Quantum Mechanics by J. E. House
This
calculus-based book is written for the beginner at quantum mechnics. In
easy-to-understand terminology, the reader is taken from the early developments
in physics that led to quantum mechanics through topics that are essential
to understanding modern chemistry and physics. The book is designed for
self-study and provides fully-developed mathematical details. It stresses
the applications of the harmonic oscillator, rigid rotor, barrier penetration,
and hydrogen atom models. Topics dealing with chemical bonding, symmetry,
and molecular orbitals provide the background necessary for the study
of quantum mechanics at a more advanced level
