#### Review: The Principles of Quantum Mechanics

User Review - Ian Carmichael - GoodreadsBeautiful science. Elegant and perfect mathematical physics, in a lovely binding and typeface from OUP. Not a popular work. (You do need to know your physics and your mathematics!) Belongs on shelves with GH Hardy's mathematics texts and Chandrasekhar's physics work. Read full review
