Modern Quantum Mechanics is a classic graduate level textbook, covering the main quantum mechanics concepts in a clear, organized and engaging manner. This best-selling classic provides a graduate-level, non-historical, modern introduction of quantum mechanical concepts. The author, J. J. Sakurai, was a. This best-selling graduate textbook on quantum mechanics is now The author, J. J. Sakurai, was a renowned theorist in particle theory.

And then you get to scattering. Ya see, our friend JJ Sakurai had the gall to die before finishing this book, and countless grad students are made to suffer for it. The bastard. Chapters 6 and onwards are a mess, and while Napolitano has at least made The first few chapters are fantastic, as the non-historical approach to quantum mechanics and the ability or merely choice to drop Dirac notation on your ass straight away helps solidify all the things you thought you understood as an undergrad. Chapters 6 and onwards are a mess, and while Napolitano has at least made an effort to update them and make them more understandable, he seems to have failed miserably. Then there is also the inexplicable decision to include problems based on material that is not at all covered in the text. I quite distinctly recall a problem concerning spontaneous emission and the lifetime of the 2p state, although Napolitano seems to think this is so trivial as to not include a section that so much as uses these words. For those inclined to actually study this problem, or for those who have the bad luck of having a professor assign this problem, I highly recommend Sakurai's other book, Advanced Quantum Mechanics, as here you will find the full treatment and will be able to work up to the solution. That a graduate level text in its third edition there was a "revised" edition before this "second" edition has problems that the authors don't even deign to acknowledge is astonishing, especially when they are complex enough to warrant an entire chapter in an "Advanced" textbook, and that about sums up how I feel about the last few chapters. I can't get enough of the first 4 chapters, but the ill-thought out bits about scattering, identical particles, and relativistic QM really mar Sakurai's legacy. Napolitano should be ashamed. As such, some chapters are marvels of clarity while others are impenetrable murks.

This revision by Jim Napolitano retains the original material and adds topics that extend the text's usefulness into the 21st century. The introduction of new material, and modification of existing material, appears in a way that better prepares the student for the next course in quantum field theory.

You will still find such classic developments as neutron interferometer experiments, Feynman path integrals, correlation measurements, and Bell's inequality. The style and treatment of topics is now more consistent across chapters. The Second Edition has been updated for currency and consistency across all topics and has been checked for the right amount of mathematical rigor.

Winn , Robert D. He was appointed as an assistant professor at the University of Chicago, where he worked until he became a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles in Since that time, he has conducted research in experimental nuclear and particle physics, with an emphasis on studying fundamental interactions and symmetries.

He joined the faculty at Rensselaer in after working as a member of the scientific staff at two different national laboratories. He is author and co-author of over scientific papers in refereed journals.

Professor Napolitano maintains a keen interest in science education in general, and in particular physics education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. He has taught both graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses in Quantum Mechanics, as well as an advanced graduate course in Quantum Field Theory.
