# Quantum Mechanics with Basic Field Theory

@inproceedings{Desai2009QuantumMW, title={Quantum Mechanics with Basic Field Theory}, author={Bipin R. Desai}, year={2009} }

Students and instructors alike will find this organized and detailed approach to quantum mechanics ideal for a two-semester graduate course on the subject. This textbook covers, step-by-step, important topics in quantum mechanics, from traditional subjects like bound states, perturbation theory and scattering, to more current topics such as coherent states, quantum Hall effect, spontaneous symmetry breaking, superconductivity, and basic quantum electrodynamics with radiative corrections. The…

The relationship between entanglement, energy and level degeneracy in two-electron systems

- Physics
- 2012

The entanglement properties of two-electron atomic systems have been the subject of considerable research activity in recent years. These studies are still somewhat fragmentary, focusing on numerical…

Higgs and BCS Theory: A Dynamical Breaking of Symmetry

- Physics
- 2012

An introductory derivation of the abelian Higgs mechanism is presented. This mechanism is extended to the Standard Model electroweak symmetry group, SU(2)L U(1)Y , where it generates the boson and…

Avoiding Negative Probabilities in Quantum Mechanics

- Physics
- 2013

As currently understood since its discovery, the bare Klein-Gordon
theory consists of negative quantum probabilities which are considered to be
physically meaningless if not outright obsolete.…

Quantum entanglement in exactly soluble atomic models: the Moshinsky model with three electrons, and with two electrons in a uniform magnetic field

- Physics
- 2012

AbstractWe investigate the entanglement-related features of the eigenstates of two exactly soluble atomic models: a one-dimensional three-electron Moshinsky model, and a three-dimensional…

The polarizability of a confined atomic system: an application of the Dalgarno–Lewis method

- PhysicsEuropean Journal of Physics
- 2021

In this paper we give an application of the Dalgarno–Lewis method, the latter not usually taught in quantum mechanics courses. This is very unfortunate since this method allows one to bypass the sum…

Third quantization of the electromagnetic field

- PhysicsPhysical Review A
- 2021

electromagnetic field is already second quantized, this corresponds to an additional or third quantization. The third-quantization approach can be used to perform certain quantum optics calculations…

3D Topological Kondo Insulators

- Physics
- 2017

Topological Kondo insulators (TKIs) are new type of symmetry-protected topological insulators, which develop through the interplay of strong correlations and spin-orbit interactions. In these…

On some consequences of the Laplacian’s singularity at the origin in spherical coordinates

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2014

In this article we address the singular behavior of the Laplace operator in spherical coordinates, which has been established in our earlier works. This singularity has many non-trivial consequences.…

Majorana fermions in well aligned InSb-nanowires with superconducting and normal contacts

- Physics
