need Quantam mechanics introductionary literature
 
Dear fellas,
I am a bachelor in Electrical Engineering, planning for Masters in Nanotechnology. I have 1 year time to build my basics in Quantum Mechanics. I got suggestion about "Introduction to Quantum Mechanics - D. Griffiths". But he starts directly starts with Schroedinger's eqn..
Can you pls suggest books which will start with Basics in QM and deal all required things.
sincerely
Kishore

Take a look at "Essential Quantum Mechanics" by Gary Bowman. You may find it helpful. (It's the sort of book I would have appreciated, back in the day.)

Any introduction to modern physics book should have all of the build up to Schrodinger's equation and it's solutions. But you'd be paying for a lot more than you're going to use since most of these also include statistical mechanics, particles, and relativity and other topics as well.

Scrödinger's equation is the basics in QM... You can do some heuristic derivations of it, but the equation itself is as basic as it gets.

Liboff introductory QM, it's well paced for a beginner.

And McMahon's QM demystified. It does have some calculation errors here and there, but it's the easiest text I've ever seen.
