In this post, we will see the book *Quantum Mechanics* by A. A. Sokolov, T. M. Loksutov, I. M. Ternov.

**About the book**

This book is specifically a “textbook” for learning the physical content of quantum mechanics. There is a pleasing progression from the gross quantum effects (blackbody radiation, photoelectric effect, specific heats) to typical quantum mechanical behavior (spreading of wave packets, barrier penetration, stationary states, spin and angular momentum multiplets) to the more refined quantum phenomenology (fine structure, effect of the nucleus on atomic structure, quantum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field, coupling of angular momentums in multielectron atoms and molecules). At each stage of remoteness from everyday experience some of the conceptually and computationally abstruse parts of the theory are dealt with in explicit detail that emphasizes the real observability of the phenomenon. The mathematical form of the theory is thereby dictated by the necessity of having a notational apparatus that is sufficiently rich and flexible to embrace the scope of actual observable effects.

The book was translated from the Russian by Scripta Technica and was published in 1966 by Holt.
