Brilliant to get you accustomed to the initially bizarre concepts in the subject although you'll have to look elsewhere for a discussion of Dirac notation and the more advanced relativistic side of QM. Apr 02, Laura Dam rated it really liked it Shelves: science. Very good textbook. I like that it has a lot of written explanations and clarifications which are very useful.
The most obscure parts of the interpretation of formulas are explained in a way that makes it easier to understand. I got lost anyway while trying to follow some demonstrations, the author skips some mathematical steps which were not evident for me and had to check in some other books.
Quantum physics is notoriously for crushing the enthusiasm of many a young physics student with a massive iron club of mathematics but this is a surprisingly gentle introduction that doesn't sacrifice the theory. Quantum theory grew out of investigations into atoms and the basic approach of this book parallels that historical development, tracing quantum theory through the study of atoms, molecules, solids, and nuclei.
Many other books simply toss chuck wave functions at you and hope that you lea Quantum physics is notoriously for crushing the enthusiasm of many a young physics student with a massive iron club of mathematics but this is a surprisingly gentle introduction that doesn't sacrifice the theory.
Many other books simply toss chuck wave functions at you and hope that you learn to juggle quickly. Now, I'm a man who likes my theory but some motivation and links to observable effects are always refreshing. Unlike many quantum books, there are plenty of references to experiments and natural phenomena, including nice explanations of lasers, superconductors, semiconductor devices, and more.
The drawback to this abundance of explanations is that much of the mathematics gets swept under the rug. If you require a thorough derivation of every equation presented to you, expect frustration. The author's approach is to introduce many of the ideas of quantum theory, but not always provide a rigorous mathematical background some is hidden in the wealth of appendices but much is simply not included. That said, this is a great starting point for understanding quantum theory but definitely not comprehensive.
The book also includes two sections on particle physics. Studying particle physics is already like visiting the zoo but doing so with this book is like visiting the zoo on a train. The authors fly through the material so quickly, trying to pack a massive amount of information into the final pages of the book its almost unreadable at points.
I'd recommend skipping it and saving yourself the confusion. Dec 03, Laura rated it it was amazing. I'm prepping an introduction to modern physics class for spring and feeling nostalgic and sad that this book has gone out of print.
Part of it is that this book is the first one I read that made me really LOVE physics, so nothing else is going to recapture that first amazement or wonder at the beauty of quantum mechanics.
That said, I just haven't found anything else that makes the introduction to quantum so clear and easy to understand as this one does. It is complete without overwhelming an un I'm prepping an introduction to modern physics class for spring and feeling nostalgic and sad that this book has gone out of print. It is complete without overwhelming an undergraduate in math assuming one knows calculus thoroughly and makes the concepts feel approachable and easily understood.

The exposition is relatively prose-heavy, but it never gets tedious, and the ideas are clear. View 1 comment. Mar 17, Jovany Agathe rated it really liked it.
Oct 21, Rafael Pissardo rated it it was amazing. Livro denso. The book is good for noobs. At the same time the writing is week with all the excess injection of side comments. The particle information is dated as expected given the age of the book. Oct 29, Adam Lantos rated it it was amazing. There are many amazing QM books out there Shankar's or Griffith's for example but this has its own style and offers as much intuition as the other best books on QM out there. At some points it offers more intuitions and at other points less.
So having another QM book along this would be ideal for a full deep understanding. But this does not mean that this book is best used as a supplement second book!
It is certainly suitable for primary book on QM. Very insightful and deals with some subtle ma There are many amazing QM books out there Shankar's or Griffith's for example but this has its own style and offers as much intuition as the other best books on QM out there.
Very insightful and deals with some subtle mathematical or physical themes at a few occasions. Jul 29, Chris Walker rated it it was amazing. A great into to quantum physics. Eisberg follows the path of discovery of the original scientists from experimental results to mathematical theories.
This book can feel more like a novel than a textbook at times, and that's great. Feb 27, ruben flores added it. Aug 09, Riley Holmes rated it it was amazing. My new favorite physics text. I loved the examples and applications. May 08, Matthew added it Shelves: maths-and-sciences. Studying for quantum physics module in first year.
