Principles of Quantum Mechanics - Kindle edition by Shankar, R.. Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or tablets. Publish and perish-Giordano Bruno Given the number of books that already exist on the subject of quantum mechanics, one would think that the public needs one more as much as it does, say, the latest version of the Table of Integers. I was impressed from how clear and well-motivated everything is in this textbook. This book is just that; an excellent introduction to a fascinating subject. I would recommend doing so in conjunction with R. Shankar's Quantum Mechanics. The book itself is very good, first chapter builds the mathematical preliminaries, the next two chapters motivated quantum mechanics (from a historical context), this is where I am at. an excellent introduction to a fascinating subject, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 3, 2017. Pedagogical Masterpiece: clear presentation, great choice of material, carefully chosen exercises, well-motivated physics, Reviewed in the United States on December 27, 2017.

Fantastic text to read after a freshman/sophomore "quantum physics" or "modern physics" course, as they call them. (American Scientist), "No matter how gently one introduces students to the concept of Dirac’s bras and kets, many are turned off. In all cases the results were very satisfactory in the sense that the students seemed to have learned the subject well and to have enjoyed the presentation. Does this book contain quality or formatting issues? As someone with a post graduate in Mathematics I wanted a technical book to teach the basics of QM. Please try again.

Fantastic text to read after a freshman/sophomore "quantum physics" or "modern physics" course, as they call them. You will need to be grounded in classical mechanics and have a reasonable grounding in undergrad mathematics to benefit from the book, it is aimed at "all" levels but clearly requires you to come prepared.

But this does not deter me (as it didn't my predecessors) from trying to circulate my own version of how it ought to be taught. By that I mean after you take a course that goes over failures of classical theory and introduces quantum ideas along with solving particle in a box problems and the like without delving too deep, but is not quite considered the quantum mechanics course at your university.
