Hello,
I've seen some ask about math prereqs for Sakurai's Modern Quantum Mechanics, but I was wondering about the physics prereqs as well. Should classical mechanics and electrodynamics be studied beyond first-year physics courses? Also, is statistical physics needed?
What are the physics...
I have taken a couple of graduate level courses in quantum mechanics and I have decided to read Sakurai's Modern Quantum Mechanics from cover to cover, partly because I liked his style and I have heard a lot of people talk highly of it. But I recently realised that the second edition of the same...
Homework Statement
Reading Sakurai I cannot see how he gets to the end of 1.7.15 as below:
Homework Equations
∫dx'|x'><x'-dx' |α>
= ∫dx'|x'>{<x' |α>-Δx'∂/∂x'<x' |α>}
The Attempt at a Solution
I tried a Taylor expansion but cannot see how this is derived.
Hello science buddies,
This is my first post in this forum. Ok let me get to the point directly, currently I self-study graduate level quantum theory and the main book I'm using is Sakurai's. But I think for self studying it's better to also have a look at lecture notes, first because it's much...
