Reviews from the 1st Edition:

"An very good textual content … The postulates of quantum mechanics and the mathematical underpinnings are mentioned in a transparent, succinct manner." (American Scientist)

"No topic how lightly one introduces scholars to the idea that of Dirac’s bras and kets, many are became off. Shankar assaults the matter head-on within the first bankruptcy, and in a truly casual type means that there's not anything to be worried of." (Physics Bulletin)

Reviews of the second one Edition:

"This colossal textual content of seven-hundred and strange pages has certainly an exceptional get-up, is especially verbal and expressive, and has greatly labored out calculational details---all most suitable for a primary direction. the fashion is conversational, extra like a hall speak or lecture notes, even though prepared as a textual content. … it'd be relatively important to starting scholars and people in allied parts like quantum chemistry." (Mathematical Reviews)

R. Shankar has brought significant additions and up-to-date key shows during this moment variation of ideas of Quantum Mechanics. New positive factors of this leading edge textual content comprise a wholly rewritten mathematical advent, a dialogue of Time-reversal invariance, and large insurance of various direction integrals and their purposes. extra highlights include:

- transparent, available therapy of underlying mathematics

- A assessment of Newtonian, Lagrangian, and Hamiltonian mechanics

- scholar figuring out of quantum thought is stronger by means of separate therapy of mathematical theorems and actual postulates

- Unsurpassed insurance of course integrals and their relevance in modern physics

The needful textual content for complicated undergraduate- and graduate-level scholars, rules of Quantum Mechanics, moment variation is absolutely referenced and is supported through many routines and ideas. The book’s self-contained chapters additionally make it appropriate for self reliant examine in addition to for classes in utilized disciplines.
