Paragraph after (3-134); Pedagogic improvement. Change to

“where we re-characterize the expectation value in terms of an initial non-vacuum state and what is typically a different final non-vacuum state, and commonly, C = Sfi ≠ 0. Take care that often it is not stated that the expression is in the HP, and that can be very confusing, as the similar expression in the IP is always equal to zero (for different initial and final states).”

Feb 9 2022

Almost all references to Chap. 3 equation numbers are one number too high. For example, (3-14) everywhere should be (3-13). Throughout the chapter subtract one from such references, except for pg. 124 (3-6), (3-9), and (3-11), which are correct as they stand.

I truly regret the hassle this causes you. These were dynamic links to equations in Chap. 3, and they were all correct when 6 reviewers plus myself did careful editing of the chapter. Somehow, since then, they got messed up, most likely from some electronic glitch.

Luc Longtin

Feb 13 2022

3rd line above (4-1): change “along the path of each quantum particle” to “along a particular path of the quantum particle”

Luc Longtin

Dec 29, 2021

Mid page, paragraph beginning “The second topic …”, 2nd line: the parentheses should read - (pgs. 40-44) -. This is a dynamic link to a bookmark on pg 40 that was supposed to bring in the page number 40, but somehow it got the text of the bookmark instead.

April 12, 2022

Pedagogic improvement: After (9-167), replace the 1st sentence with the following.

Now, Θ here represents CP, though more generically, it is a symbol that stands for any one, or a combination of any two or three of the C, P and (or T) operators, each of which, if performed twice, gives back what we had originally. Thus, as noted two pages earlier, each such operator is its own inverse, so,  Θ Θ =Ι and Θ1 Θ1 =Ι. Inserting these identities, respectively, right before the ket and right after the bra in (9-167), we get (9-166), i.e., the two equations are the same thing.

Luc Longtin

335

April 12, 2022

The software (Microsoft Word) has issues where it suddenly and randomly increases or decreases font size in equations by 20% or so. It does this occasionally and without warning, and Microsoft has done nothing about it despite repeated requests to do so by many. It happened to occur right when the book was being put into electronic form for the printer, and the author, in the final review before printing, did not catch it. Content is not affected.
