About the Author

David H. McIntyre received a B.S. degree in physics from the University of Arizona and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Stanford University.  He has been on the physics faculty at Oregon State University since 1989 and is one of the original developers of the Paradigms in Physics program.  His other teaching interests include computational physics, computer interfacing, and optical physics.  His laboratory research interests are in laser spectroscopy and optical physics.

 

Corinne A. Manogue received an A.B. degree in mathematics and physics from Mount Holyoke Collegeand a Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Texas at Austin.  She has been on the physics faculty at Oregon State University since 1988 and is the Director and one of the original developers of the Paradigms in Physics program.  She is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and was awarded the Excellence in Undergraduate Physics Teaching Award from the American Association of Physics Teachers in 2008.   She is coauthoring a textbook on The Geometry of Vector Calculus. Her theoretical research interests use the octonions to parameterize higher dimensional theories of particle physics.

 

Janet Tate received a B.Sc. degree in physics and chemistry from the University of Natal and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Stanford University.  She has been on the physics faculty at Oregon State University since 1989 and is one of the original developers of the Paradigms in Physics program.  She is particularly interested in helping students to improve their critical thinking skills, especially through experimental work and writing.  Her laboratory research interests are in experimental condensed matter physics.

The best undergraduate textbook in Quantum mechanics. Do not lose your time looking for modest books to understand Quantum mechanics as I did, because this book gives you the clearest and easiest ways of explanations to this subject. This is the modest Quantum mechanics textbook.

A modern introduction to Quantum Mechanics at the undergraduate level.
The reading and problems are tractable while offering a high-level of insight into how physicists really work, and there is sufficient breadth that this can serve as a valuable reference text.

CSUCI used this for its first Quantum Mechanics lecture, and both the professor and the students were surprised at how wonderful it was.
Even the dinky applet-based labs were edifying, despite taking forever to complete.

I loved it, and it refreshed my passion for physics.

Format: Hardcover
Sharp book. Very well organized--very well typeset, laid-out on the page. Easy to read. Doesn't leave me staring going 'where'd that come from?' alot. Summaries. Formula section. Starts with a real quantum situation, then wraps the rules around it, then shows how the rules apply to lotsa different kinds of situations. And I hate Griffiths ("standard" qm book I had to use as an undie).

I dare anybody to find a better undergraduate QM book. Even as a grad student I refer to it often when I want to skip the obtuseness of Sakurai or the breadth of Shankar and just remind myself of the basic concepts, "recipes," and problem-solving methods as well as the physics. I feel that the graduate texts, which focus more on formalism and derivations, can give less of the physics.

I *guarantee* you that if you read this book and make a good effort to understand it and the problems, you will make it through a grad-level QM class just fine. Covers much of the same material as Shankar and sometimes even in the same order, but with more pretty pictures. Also has a companion website with some simulations.

A great book!
Very detail and have a lot of exercises for you to practice.
Prof. McIntyre related each topic to some kind of an experiment which make thing easier to grasp rather than just putting out the equations!
I think that this is a very good introductory text! It help you to understand the key points about QM before you actually diving into all those theoretical equations that presented in more advance QM text.
There are also many pictures and diagrams... these are GREAT because it really help the visualization process.
