Modern Quantum Mechanics – J. J. Sakurai – 1st Edition


This best-selling classic provides a graduate-level, non-historical, modern introduction of mechanical concepts. The author, J. J. Sakurai, was a renowned theorist in particle theory. The introduction of new material, and modification of existing material, appears in a way that better prepares the student for the next in quantum field theory.

will still find such classic developments as neutron interferometer , Feynman path integrals, correlation measurements, and Bell’s inequality. The style and treatment of topics is now more consistent across chapters.
