 The ordering of chapters has been changed so that the book divides more neatly into the basics of quantum mechanics and the most important applications that one would want to cover in a onesemester course.
 The discussion of the general structure of wave mechanics and the more abstract description of quantum mechanics (including Dirac Notation) has been expanded.
 New topics have been added including a discussion of the threelevel system and a chapter on entanglement and macroscopic superposition.

 The treatment of an electron in a magnetic field has been to late place in the book to form a unit (Chs. 16, 17, and 18) on radiative decays and radiation.
