Quantum Mechanics


Show Synopsis

Rapid advances in quantum optics, atomic physics, particle physics and other areas have been driven by fantastic progress in instrumentation (especially lasers) and computing technology as well as by the ever-increasing emphasis on symmetry and information concepts--requiring that all physicists receive a thorough grounding in quantum mechanics. This book provides a carefully structured and complete exposition of quantum mechanics and illustrates the common threads linking many different phenomena and subfields of physics.

Good but not great

I picked up this book because it was the reference listed for my graduate quantum class. I found that the derivations in the book were sometimes a little hard to follow and the notation a little strange as the same letters are used for an operator, its eigenstate and its eigenvalue. I have looked at other books and prefer Messiah's Quantum Mechanics over Merzbacher. That being said, I did like the chapter on spin, and I think the discussion on the harmonic oscillator is well done. Overall, I think this is better than many of the Quantum Mechanics books I have come across but surely not the best. It's always good to have a few books on hand though. I don't think I'll be selling this one any time soon.
