Book Question

  1. Jun 19, 2008 #1
    Just out of curiosity, how hard is Fitzpatrick's online Graduate version of quantum mechanics compared to the Feynmann lectures and Sakurai's book?

    I've never heard of Fitzpatrick's course, but the gap between the Feynman lectures and Sakurai is very very significant.

    Sakurai by a landslide I'd imagine. Feynman's lectures were intended to instill a love of physics to a group of first year university students. They're not like actual advanced lectures.

    Yep. Feynman's lectures are good for introducing quantum mechanics, but it's presented for first-year undergrads. Sakurai is an advanced graduate text, and a difficult one at that. Fitzpatrick's is definitely closer to Sakurai.
