Any course in physics cannot be completed without learning quantum mechanics. This subject helps in understanding the individual behaviour of the subatomic particles that constitute all forms of matter. Principles of Quantum Mechanics comprehensively covers all relevant topics to meet the requirements of both undergraduate and postgraduate students of physics. The initial chapters of the book introduce the basic fundamentals of the subject to help the first-time learners and the later chapters cover aspects that will prepare them to apply quantum mechanics to understand the various physical phenomena, for example, the working of micro- and nano-devices. The book includes a detailed discussion on why classical mechanics, which is applicable at macroscopic level, cannot be applicable at microscopic level .
