A Bibliography to begin with

    I'd like to have some ideas of books so that I get to know more about Quantum Physics. Not something too easy not something really complicated but something to know more about the subject. Thanks.

    How much mathematics do you know? I'd normally recommend Griffith's An Introduction to Quantum Mechanics , or Principles of Quantum Mechanics by Shankar. But it is very dependent on how much mathematics you know.

    Hi and thanks !

    Well I'm finishing high school... I think that the Introduction goes well with my case. I studied maths in advanced course but not like I'm hoping to study them next year... So to begin the two books seem great !

    Also, I'd suggest reading Shankar first, it has an overview of the important math in the beginning, and is centered towards one person rather than a class.

    BTW, welcome to the forum!
