Book on Dirac Picture

  1. Jan 4, 2015 #1
    I've taken a course in QM 1, based on the Schrodinger picture and QM 2 looks to be a continuation of this picture.

    Looking through Wikipedia, I found the article on the Dirac picture. Is there a good undergraduate (at the level of Griffiths or Shankar) textbook on this picture of QM? Since Statistical mechanics, Dirac has been a sort of idol of mine and I'd like to learn more about this picture.

    I don't think you will get an entire book on that. The interaction picture is basically developed to make time-dependent perturbation theory easier to deal with. You can look in probably Shankar or Sakurai or any standard QM book on the time-dependent perturbation theory and the interaction picture will probably pop up. Not in Griffiths though.
