Introduction to. Quantum Mechanics. David J. Griffiths. Reed College. Prentice Hall. Upper Saddle River, New Jersey Editorial Reviews. Book Description. This widely-used and time-tested textbook is Support Advanced Search. Kindle Store · Kindle eBooks · Science & Math. This bestselling undergraduate quantum mechanics textbook is now available in a re-issued, affordable edition from Cambridge University.

Shelves: physics , non-fiction , science , textbook , quantum-mechanics I've always wanted to explore the world of quantum mechanics, so last semester I decided to take an introductory course, and I'm very glad I did. I'm still a long way from having a solid grasp on this weird and unintuitive subject, but, thanks to this textbook and my awesome professor , I'm much more confident dealing with quantum phenomena now. For example, Griffiths takes his time to explain standard deviations, separation of variables, and phase and group velocity in the beginning. This makes the book very accessible. The bad: While a step by step calculation makes it easy to follow, one often gets lost in details and misses the big picture. This is not helped by the fact that the book shies away from the math of QM: linear algebra and the concise Dirac notation, which is introduced but quickly discarded. The author takes the shut-up-and-calculate approach to the extreme like how standard freshman physics textbooks present QM.

The many subtleties of postulates are never spelled out. Compare this to e.

Symmetry and change-of-basis transformations only make a brief appearance as 2 and 3-star end-chapter problems which, according to the author's rating scheme, are difficult or peripheral problems and even there he still doesn't tell you that they are unitary matrices!

The use of the word spinors interchangeably with two-element column matrices does not help in the slightest.

Two-element column matrices are two-element column matrices. Spinors are related to representations of rotation groups, to which Griffiths makes no connection.

He also makes degenerate perturbation theory looks complicate, whereas in fact it is just diagonalizing the degenerated submatrix.

In conclusion, it seems that everything involving matrices is so badly treated that this book should be called Introduction to Wave Mechanics. I used this book for an undergraduate course taught by an excellent professor.

He made up all the problem sets. So I can't judge the quality of problems in Griffiths.

Griffiths prepares you in wave mechanics for e.

A very nice second book explicitly aiming to clear up the conceptual understanding of those who just finish this kind of "wave mechanics" course is Isham's Lectures on Quantum Theory: Mathematical and Structural Foundations. Shankar and Sakurai mentioned in this review are also excellent.
