Book Description

differs from ordinary textbooks on the subject in two important ways: first, it introduces quantized systems and emphasizes quantum principles from the start rather than beginning with an analogy to classical laws or a historical approach; second, it contains a large number of practical examples that illustrate the concepts introduced and allow students to apply what they have learned.

"...a useful and readable text for advance undergraduates and beginning graduate students in physics...." -- European Journal of Physics

"Among the many books on quantum mechanics, the one from gordon and Breach is a standout." -- Forbes

"My overall impression of the book is its elegance and will find wide use in quantum theory courses." -- Nature

5.0 out of 5 stars Sakurai for the Common Reader March 16, 2001
I basically really love this book. It was my first exposure to the subject 15yrs ago and I still flip it open every once in a while. Moreover, I used this as a course text twice so far (in graduate Quantum Chemistry). It covers the topics I tend to focus upon in my class: (quantum dynamics, scattering, perturbation theory, use of operator notation, Dirac notation, etc...). It is very readable (even for students who have not had a prior undergraduate exposure to the topic and the problems are both do-able and require some physical insight. It's too bad more people do not know about this little gem of a book. It's a bit light-weight for a solid grad-level quantum course aimed at theory students. For a chemistry course, it's OK, but you need to suppliment the text with molecular examples here and there. At the Univ. of Houston, our students take a separate course in "Molecular Spectroscopy", and "Chemical Bonding" which covers more practical applications of quantum theory and at a MUCH lower level ( i.e. organic and analytical chemists take these courses), so this book fills in a nice nitch for physical chemistry students and gives them a modern feel for the subject, its language, and its application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book January 20, 1999
For a quantum mechanics begginer, like me, this book was sensational, because it is simple, objective, and contais all of the pertinent information, diferently of others books.
