AMS Chelsea Publishing: An Imprint of the American Mathematical Society

This monograph presents a detailed study of a class of
solvable models in quantum mechanics that describe the motion of a
particle in a potential having support at the positions of a discrete
(finite or infinite) set of point sources. Both situations–where
the strengths of the sources and their locations are precisely known
and where these are only known with a given probability
distribution–are covered.

The authors present a systematic mathematical approach to these
models and illustrate its connections with previous heuristic
derivations and computations. Results obtained by different methods in
disparate contexts are thus unified and a systematic control over
approximations to the models, in which the point interactions are
replaced by more regular ones, is provided.

The first edition of this book generated considerable interest for
those learning advanced mathematical topics in quantum mechanics,
especially those connected to the Schrödinger equations. This
second edition includes a new appendix by Pavel Exner, who has
prepared a summary of the progress made in the field since 1988. His
summary, centering around two-body point interaction problems, is
followed by a bibliography focusing on essential developments made
since 1988. appendix by Pavel Exner, who has prepared a summary of

The material is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in
quantum mechanics and Schrödinger operators.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in quantum mechanics and Schrödinger operators.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

There is a wealth of very pretty examples of Schrödinger operators here which could be presented ... in an elementary quantum mechanics course.
