Reviews from the 1st Edition:

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

"No subject 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 kind means that there's not anything to be apprehensive of." (Physics Bulletin)

Reviews of the second one Edition:

"This great textual content of seven-hundred and peculiar pages has certainly a very good get-up, is especially verbal and expressive, and has generally labored out calculational details---all fantastic for a primary direction. the fashion is conversational, extra like a hall speak or lecture notes, even though prepared as a textual content. … it might be rather valuable to starting scholars and people in allied components like quantum chemistry." (Mathematical Reviews)

R. Shankar has brought significant additions and up to date key displays during this moment version of ideas of Quantum Mechanics. New beneficial properties of this leading edge textual content comprise a completely rewritten mathematical advent, a dialogue of Time-reversal invariance, and vast insurance of quite a few course integrals and their purposes. extra highlights include:

- transparent, available therapy of underlying mathematics

- A assessment of Newtonian, Lagrangian, and Hamiltonian mechanics

- pupil figuring out of quantum thought is stronger through separate remedy of mathematical theorems and actual postulates

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

The needful textual content for complex undergraduate- and graduate-level scholars, ideas of Quantum Mechanics, moment version is totally referenced and is supported via many routines and ideas. The book’s self-contained chapters additionally make it compatible for autonomous research in addition to for classes in utilized disciplines.
