5 Reviews
This didactically unrivalled textbook and timeless reference by Nobel Prize Laureate Claude Cohen-Tannoudji separates essential underlying principles of quantum mechanics from specific applications and practical examples and deals with each of them in a different section. Chapters emphasize principles; complementary sections supply applications. The book provides a qualitative introduction to quantum mechanical ideas; a systematic, complete and elaborate presentation of all the mathematical tools and postulates needed, including a discussion of their physical content and applications. The book is recommended on a regular basis by lecturers of undergraduate courses.

Review: Quantum Mechanics

User Review  - Helgi - Goodreads

A very linear and a good book to teach quantum mechanics. This collection of chapters written by various people and edited by Cohen may seem impersonal but it delivers its point with great clarity. Read full review
