One person found this helpful. Pure joy. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. Nice book on advanced QM! This is an excellent textbook for an advanced course on quantum mechanics.
Steven Weinberg demonstrates his exceptional insight in this concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics for graduate students. Ideally suited to a one-year graduate course, this textbook is also a useful reference for researchers. It covers many topics not often found in other texts on the subject and features end-of-chapter problems. See all Editorial Reviews.

Please try again later. Hardcover Verified Purchase. Having read and reviewed the first edition, I finally just received the second edition Amazon delayed a couple of times - either there is great demand or they didn't print enough books. I purchased the second edition for the following reasons: First edition had many errors and these have now been corrected. Excuse to reread a wonderful book. My name is mentioned in the new preface.
I would give give the book 6 stars out of 5 for content - Weinberg is the best at covering material that other books miss quantization of constrained systems, and detailed coverage of scattering theory for example , explains difficult material without handwaving arguments, and explicitly shows the calculations.
This is definitely an advanced book on quantum mechanics. It is graduate level, doesn't have any pictures or diagrams, and would not be a good choice to learn quantum mechanics for the first time. It is also clearly as titled a lecture book, and not a reference book on QM for that I would suggest Cohen-Tannoudji.
Another excellent book which also meets these requirements and slightly different content coverage and which also just came out with a second edition is Ballentine's Quantum Mechanics A Modern Development. Weinberg's "Lectures on QM" is an excellent, graduate level text on the quantum mechanics that, among other things, will prepare you for studying quantum field theory.
The book is authoritative, and very clearly written. Some highlights: These include a very clear discussion of the Heisenberg 'matrix mechanics method' at the beginning of the book, and Pauli's algebraic solution of the energy levels of the hydrogen atom. Also, his discussion of symmetry breaking in non-relativistic vs.
The book arrived on time and is new. Weinberg knows exactly what to put in a book on Quantum Mechanics. It covers a lot of topics, traditional as well as modern.
It is advanced and seems like a good sequel to Merzbacher's QM. One person found this helpful. This was a classic for all ages before it was ever released - Steven Weinberg on Quantum Mechanics, what more can be said. It will be cherished by all physicist. I met professor Weinberg while I was working on my Ph.
This text is a great study aid while taking quantum mechanics. Nice book on advanced QM! Great book with awesome packaging quality.
