Quantum mechanics undergraduate courses mostly focus on systems with known analytical solutions; the finite well, simple Harmonic, and spherical potentials. However, most problems in quantum mechanics cannot be solved analytically.

 This textbook introduces the numerical techniques required to tackle problems in quantum mechanics, providing numerous examples en route. No programming knowledge is required - an introduction to both Fortran and Python is included, with code examples throughout.

 With a hands-on approach, numerical techniques covered in this book include differentiation and integration, ordinary and differential equations, linear algebra, and the Fourier transform. By completion of this book, the reader will be armed to solve the SchroÌdinger equation for arbitrarily complex potentials, and for single and multi-electron systems.

Dr. Josh Izaac holds a PhD in Quantum Information and Computation from The University of Western Australia. He has been involved in teaching methods of computational physics and quantum mechanics for the past five years, and currently works as a computational physicist developing photonics-based quantum computing software.
