From the Publisher"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
"Overall, 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, University of California, Santa Barbara for 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, University of Manchester for 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."
