Item description for Quantum Mechanics by R. Kates Franz Schwabl...
This introductory course on quantum mechanics is the basic lecture which precedes and completes the author's second book Advanced Quantum Mechanics. The new edition is again up-to-date and has been revised. The book meets the students' needs by giving all mathematical steps, worked examples with applications throughout the text, and many problems at the end of each chapter. It contains nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and a short treatment of the quantization of the radiation field. Besides the essentials, topics such as the theory of measurement, the Bell inequality, decoherence, entanglement and supersymmetric quantum mechanics are discussed. It includes helpful appendices on Green's functions, canonical and kinetic dynamical variables, andeigenfunctions.
"Any student wishing to develop mathematical skills and deepen their understanding of the technical side of quantum theory will find Schwabl's Quantum Mechanics very helpful". Contemporary Physics

Nice book! Jun 3, 2005
This is the required textbook when I took QM course. It is a nice book. It covers almost everything that a undergraduate or graduate student need to know. But some parts of this book seem too abstract and hard to understand. It needs more worked example to help one understand it. You need another book if you want to use Schwabl to self-study QM. I consider Schwabl as a good reference book if you need to find something.
an outstanding reference Dec 4, 1999
Schwabl's Quantum Mechanics is a superb supplement to any course on quantum mechanics. After struggling through Griffith's obfuscated discussion of addition of angular momenta, Schwabl's exposition was my savior. I would not, however, try to learn QM solely from Schwabl (i.e. self-study) because he frequently skips derivations and says things like "it is immediately apparant that...," which can be frustrating. However, as a text for a course or as a supplementary resource, Schwabl is extrememly valuable.
I have been using this book in class, and I am not impressed Oct 29, 1998
While this book certainly covers a lot of ground, it is painfully lacking in derivations or examples. I beleive it would be a reasonable book to use (as a reference) for someone who has already mastered quantum mechanics, but it is almost impossible to learn out of. Also, if you want a very terse, yet comprehensive reference, why bother with something other than Landau?
