How to feed your mind

  1. Oct 13, 2003 #1
    I've seen many people refer posters to books on quantum mechanics. It seems that there are many different methods used in the books out there today. Some jump right in to solving the Schroedinger equation while others spend a lot of time on the related math beforehand. What are the forum members favorite books on quantum mechanics and why? I know that universities are slow to change their required material for practical reasons. Has anyone picked up a recent title that stuck out in their minds? Just curious...

    I thought "Quantum Mechanics" by Alistair Rae was a good book for the beginnings of QM. A new edition was released within the last year or two. Nice concise-ish book, not many examples but a good reference.
