Modern Quantum Mechanics is a classic graduate level textbook, covering the main concepts from quantum mechanics in a clear, organized and engaging manner. The original author, J. J. Sakurai, was a renowned particle theorist. This third edition, revised by Jim Napolitano, introduces topics that extend its value into the twenty-first century, such as modern mathematical techniques for advanced quantum mechanical calculations, while at the same time retaining fundamental topics such as neutron interferometer experiments, Feynman path integrals, correlation measurements, and Bell's inequalities.

Autorenporträt
Sakurai, J. J.§J. J. Sakurai was a noted theorist in particle physics and Professor of Physics at UCLA (1970-1982) and University of Chicago (1964-1970). He received his Ph.D. from Cornell University, New York in 1958. He contributed greatly to the field of particle physics before passing away at the age of 49 in 1982, while he was visiting CERN in Geneva. In addition he had held visiting staff appointments at the California Institute of Technology, Universities of Tokyo and Nagoya, University of Paris d'Orsay, Scuola Normale Superiore at Pisa, Stanford Linear Accelerator, CERN at Geneva, and Max Planck Institute at Munich. He was a Sloan Fellow (1962-1966), Fellow of the American Physical Society (1964-1982), a Guggenheim Fellow (1975-1976) and a von Humboldt Fellow (1981-1982).

Rezensionen
'A truly wonderful introduction to quantum mechanics. Sakurai's original text was elegant, simple, and full of insight. It taught me much as a graduate student. Napolitano's update adds context with applications from today's research, explained simply and beautifully. The problems are exceptionally well chosen. This book can be used for graduate quantum courses from one quarter to a year in length, in physics, materials science, or even physical chemistry.' Kieron Burke, University of California-Irvine
