Quantum Mechanics for Engineers
Firefox users: Firefox tends to mess up math images. Just press
refresh if a formula is poorly readable.
The pdf file is now optimized and has hyperlinks activated. That
is because it appears that quite a number of people prefer to read the
pdf file instead of the web pages. A few notes about the links:
- Without changing your Preferences/Settings, links to the web
might not work on recent pdf readers. That is especially likely if
you download the PDF instead of reading it in a web browser. What I
had to do with Adobe Acrobat 9 on linux was to go into menu
“Edit,” “Preferences,” “Trust
Manager,” “Internet Access from PDF files outside
the web browser,” “Change settings.” There I
had to enable the opening of all web pages. Specifying "Ask me" did
not work; it just refused to open the link instead of asking.
- You may want to activate a [back button]. In my linux version
of Adobe Acrobat reader, that is done using “Menu,”
“View,” “Toolbars,” “More
Tools...,” “Page Navigation Toolbar.” There I
had to select the “Previous View” and “Next
- To get/restore a separate table of contents, open
“Bookmarks” from menu “View,”
“Navigation Panels,” “Bookmarks.”
- Links to some sections and figures may be hard to find. If so,
search with the mouse just below the section or figure number.
- Links from the index are activated by clicking on the page number.
They put you at the top of the right page; they do not put you at
the right place on that page.
- A tip from Bob Sokalski: to read the book on a Nook download in
PDF. Then adjust font size otherwise Nook gets absolutely confused
when it is not able to fit the lines within the screen width.
It is not clear to me why people want to read the pdf. The web pages
do a much better job of linking. And of displaying at screen
resolution. The pdf file is really intended for making print outs.
