Preface
These are my own solutions to the problems in Introduction to Quantum Mechanics, 2nd ed. I have made every e?ort to insure that they are clear and correct, but errors are bound to occur, and for this I apologize in a¡¦(»ý·«)
dvance. I would like to thank the many people who pointed out mistakes in the solution manual for the ?rst edition, and encourage anyone who ?nds defects in this one to alert me (grxxxx@xxxx.edu). I¡¯ll maintain a list of errata on my web page (http://academic.reed.edu/physics/faculty/gri?ths.html),
