I am a teacher for physics at a grammar school (Gymnasium) and i decided to repeat QM I started reading David McMahon’s book QM Demystified and there are quite a few typing errors (most of them are easy to recognize). But in Chapter 2, page 34…35 in the second edition David McMahon calculate an integral (probability that a particle ist found in the intervall 0<x<32. He gets a probability of 88 % to find the particle in the intervall 0<x<32. I took a Texas Instruments TI nspire CAS calculator to numerically calculate the probability and i got a 95% probabilty. I may be wrong?

It would be so kind, if you could send me your errata for the first chapters of QM demystified, second edition.

With kind regards

5 3 light c -> light in a vacuum cc

General definitions for = read [three bars for equivalence] e.g. (1.6))

16 Strange quark for +2/3 read -1/33

17 Charmed quark for -1/3 read +2/3

Chapter 2, problem 2 (c). I think that the first two terms of the Hamiltonian density have the wrong sign. ]]>
