Item description for Quantum Mechanics by Louis Marchildon...
This advanced text develops first the underlying concepts of quantum mechanics, thus starting with state spaces of finite dimension followed by the representation of coordinates with their principal formal elements, and their applications such as the harmonic oscillator, magnetic momentum, the hydrogen atom, stationary perturbations etc. This fresh and original text on quantum mechanics focuses on: the development of numerical methods for obtaining specific results; the presentation of group theory and the systematic use of operators; the introduction of the functional integral and its applications in approximation; the discussion of distant correlations and experimental measurements. Numerous exercises with hints and solutions, examples and applications, and a guide to key references help the student to work with the text.

understandable quantum mechanics Sep 4, 2005
This book is by far the best on the market at the advanced undergrad/Ist year post grad level (tho Gasiorowicz runs a close second). Reasons for this opinion:
* The text runs in a very lucid and logical way * The maths explanations are very clear * There is a good balance between being too brief and just load of obscure verbiage * All the main points are covered thoroughly - there is no dumbing down * The problems are relevant and answers/guidlines very useful * There is a good balance between theory and calculations
