'Steven Weinberg, a Nobel Laureate in physics, has written an exceptionally clear and coherent graduate-level textbook on modern quantum mechanics. This book presents the physical and mathematical formulations of the theory in a concise and rigorous manner. The equations are all explained step-by-step, and every term is defined. He presents a fresh, integrated approach to teaching this subject with an emphasis on symmetry principles. Weinberg demonstrates his finesse as an excellent teacher and author.' Barry R. Masters, Optics and Photonics News

'… Lectures on Quantum Mechanics must be considered among the very best books on the subject for those who have had a good undergraduate introduction. The integration of clearly explained formalism with cogent physical examples is masterful, and the depth of knowledge and insight that Weinberg shares with readers is compelling.' Mark Srednicki, Physics Today

'Perhaps what distinguishes this book from the competition is its logical coherence and depth, and the care with which it has been crafted. Hardly a word is misplaced and Weinberg's deep understanding of the subject matter means that he leaves no stone unturned: we are asked to accept very little on faith … it is for the reader to follow Weinberg in discovering the joys of quantum mechanics through a deeper level of understanding: I loved it!' Jeff Forshaw, CERN Courier

'An instant classic … clear, beautifully structured and replete with insights. This confirms [Weinberg's] reputation as not only one of the greatest theoreticians of the past 50 years, but also one of the most lucid expositors. Pure joy.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

Über das Produkt

Steven Weinberg demonstrates his exceptional insight in this concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics for graduate students. Ideally suited to a one-year graduate course, this textbook is also a useful reference for researchers. It covers many topics not often found in other texts on the subject and features end-of-chapter problems.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Da ich "Gravitation and Cosmology" und das neuere Buch "Cosmology" von Weinberg kenne und sehr schätze hatte ich entsprechend hohe Erwartungen zu "Lectures on Quantum Mechanics". Sie wurden voll erfüllt. Weinberg beschreibt theoretisch-physikalische Zusammenhänge außerst präzise. Seine Argumentation ist lückenlos, so dass der Leser an keiner Stelle abgehängt wird. Obwohl ich selbst theoretischer Physiker bin, lese ich das Buch mit großem Vergnügen. Meine Beurteilung bezieht sich auf den ersten Teil des Buches, den ich bisher gelesen habe. Ich habe keinen Zweifel, dass auch der zweite Teil meine Erwartungen erfüllen wird. Hintergrundskenntnisse in Physik und Mathematik sind erforderlich.

Wonderful book, but difficult to use because of idiosyncratic notation 16. März 2013
Von Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a wonderful book, but it suffers from some of the same problems that make Weinberg's
QFT books difficult to use as textbooks.

The wonderful part: Beautifully clear explanations of many subjects, for example an interesting discussion of the history of matrix mechanics, an unusually detailed discussion of the interpretation of QM, in particular the problem of deriving the Born rule in the Many Worlds frame work. Also, how to obtain the spectrum of the Coulomb problem by algebraic methods, a nice discussion of scattering, the optical theorem, resonances, time ordered perturbation theory etc. Finally, a nice discussion of quantization with constraints.

The frustrating part: As usual, Weinberg makes up his own notation. In the present case he refuses to use Dirac's Bra/Ket notation (in a footnote, he provides an unconvincing reason for his refusal). This leads to many hard-to-read formulas (dyads instead of ket/bra operators), and I would never use this book as a text book. This is reminiscent of his refusal to use Weyl spinors in the SUSY QFT book.

Some oddities: There are a few places where it appears that Weinberg lost interest (or energy). A section on path integrals, too short to be of much use. Also, a very short section on Bell's inequality and about three pages on quantum computing.

Fabulous 28. Januar 2013
Von William R. Franklin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Anyone wondering if the world needed another text on nonrelativistic quantum mechanics will have his doubts immediately dispelled by this wonderful new book from Steven Weinberg. Weinberg, of course, is one of the most eminent living physicists, having shared the 1979 Nobel Prize with Abdus Salam (my Ph.D. supervisor) and Sheldon Glashow for creating the unified field theory of the weak and electromagnetic interactions. His intelligence, erudition and experience are again convincingly demonstrated here.

This book has it all. Following a technical historical introduction, Weinberg presents the general formulation of quantum mechanics in terms of state vectors in Hilbert space. Many topics, such as the Wigner-Eckart theorem, Bloch Waves and Landau levels, normally treated only in more specialised works, are found here, as well. Weinberg's discussion of canonical formalisms even includes an introduction to Feynman's path integral formulation. And some of his examples, especially from modern particle physics and current topics such as entanglement and quantum computation, would have been unknown to authors of texts even a few decades ago.

It is clear that Weinberg is eager to prepare the student for modern quantum field theory given his emphasis on internal symmetries, rotation groups and gauge invariance. As a mathematician, I might have wished for a more mathematically unified treatment of symmetry groups but that will have to wait for another course.

This comprehensive, extraordinarily clear presentation of so much material, combined with Weinberg's remarkable physical insight, will make this the text of choice for the foreseeable future.

Review even needed? 5. Januar 2013
Von Josh Mattes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Weinberg finally wrote a book on non-relativistic quantum mechanics. Anybody who's read his other books knows he's a master of clear prose. The concision and clarity of his exposition rivals that of any other physics author. Furthermore, you *know* that Weinberg knows what he's talking about when it comes to theoretical physics. Is a review for this book even needed? Maybe not . . .

On the downside, I will say that this book (along with his former book, "Cosmology") has a few more typos than his earlier texts (which had shockingly minimal typos), though his books are still more careful and meticulous than most others out there. An upside is that the selection of topics is refreshingly different than a lot of other texts. He actually discusses how to transition to a continuum limit in a Hilbert space. He actually gives symmetries the attention they deserve in NRQM. It's nice to have a mainstream textbook with a readable, concise, and yet careful discussion of elementary scattering theory. He even gives a nice discussion of the S-matrix and path integration in a non-relativistic context. Clearly his lectures were meant to prepare students for his QFT courses, and thus it makes perfect sense that this book provides a good preparation for tackling his famous series "The Quantum Theory of Fields."

Excellent second book on QM 22. April 2013
Von Mark Weitzman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great second book - graduate level - on quantum mechanics. I like that the book is short only 350 pages v. the frequent 600-1400 pages of some other QM textbooks. Yet it seems to cover all the essential material and what's great about Weinberg's books is that there are no hand waving arguments - you may need eyeglasses for the footnotes but he does give the complete argument. He treats old topics (spherical harmonics) in ways that I have not seen in other QM books and I have read many of them. My other favorite QM graduate level book is Ballentine. Only negative in Weinberg's books as noted by another reviewer is his unusual notation. But at least it will prepare you for his other masterpieces - his three volume QFT work and his recent Cosmology book.

Good reference, probably needs a strong instructor to use as a text 16. Mai 2013
Von Ursiform - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Having heard Steven Weinberg lecture, and having read both technical and popular writings of his, the approach he takes in this book was not a surprise. As always, he is clear, precise, and concise. Although a bit on the dry side (absolutely no Feynman antics ever to be found!), his efficient writing style avoids being dull.

Not unexpectedly, his approach is more based on mathematics than intuition or heuristics. He signals this in the Preface, where he explains not using Dirac's "bra-ket" notation because "for some purposes it is awkward". A fair point, yet I have always found the bra-ket notation a helpful shorthand for understanding how operators act on states, something that large integrals don't do unless you are a total math geek.*

The lectures themselves contain sparse paragraphs of text and a lot of equations. That's fine if you already know the material and want to use the book as a reference. For a student new to the material I think more expansive lectures by the instructor would be needed to make this text work well.

Not everyone learns or visualizes physics the same way. While I see this as a good reference book, I don't think I would have enjoyed learning quantum mechanics from it. But a student more math-focused than I might disagree.

Overall, I think it is good to have Weinberg's approach to the subject available.

* I'm not exactly a math-phobe, my own dissertation having been based on solving four dimensional wave equations.
