#### Library E-Books

We have signed up with three aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a “patron-driven demand” model.

These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus, but only from the following aggregators:

- Ebook Library, a service of Ebooks Corporation Ltd. of Australia
- ebrary, based in Palo Alto, a subsidiary of ProQuest
- EBSCO / netLibrary, Alabama

as well as through the following wholesalers: The Yankee Book Peddler subsidiary of Baker & Taylor, Inc.

This book is an introduction to quantum mechanics for undergraduates and interested lay persons. The presentation is both reader-friendly and complete. The first four chapters cover the conceptual and philosophical aspects of quantum mechanics, before the next eleven chapters gently present the mathematics underlying the subject. After a chapter on the history of the theory, the whole of quantum mechanics is then presented. This is followed by applications of the theory and a revision chapter, before we briefly look ahead at relativistic quantum theory.
