Ok, I'm out for the summer, but we never covered all the quantum dynamics chapters. I am interested, but am having a bit of a hard time in self study i.e. understanding the schrodinger equation. Any recommendations? Any books?
Megus said:How can I learn it ? What books shall I buy (already have Feynman's lectures) ? I have heard neither about any QM course near me, nor any good teacher - so what's the best way to self-study it ? Just sit down reading and making some notes ?
baffledMatt said:Feynman's lectures are an excellent way to start. I can't remember how heavy the math gets, but I'm sure you can skip the bits where it gets too hairy.
baffledMatt said:The only other thing I can advise is stay on top of your school studies so you will be able to go to college and study it properly. That's when it gets really exciting!
But I think a popularization is a good starting point, before you get into the math-based books.
Does it get into second quantization of QFT? Thanks.alexepascual said:Mike:
I just remembered one more popularization:
"Quantum Reality" by Nick Herbert. It is good.
