An Introduction to the Methods of Quantum Mechanics
So far, we have discussed some of the experimental evidence that led to the breakdown of classical physics and to the beginning of quantum mechanics. We have seen how the introduction of the quantization postulates explained the experimental facts concerning blackbody radiation, the photoelectric effect, and the hydrogen spectrum. These theories constitute what we call today the old quantum theory (OQT).
