## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am trying to learn/relearn QM after a lengthy layoff (10+ years). I have had calc and diff EQ and partial Diff EQ but to be honest I don't remember the details anymore. For example I don't remember any of the standard solutions to integrals. I understand the principles but am just out of practice of actually doing it. I can follow along in a text ok but don't ask me to independantly solve the problems... the memory is just not there. I had actually taken a grad class or two on Quantum Chemistry so I know I could do it at one time!

Here is the question. Is it possible to learn QM and QFT principles without the detail technical ability? I have access to text books but it would take forever to go back over them to bring myself back up to math speed. I am not looking to be a master on these subjects but I am trying to be able to understand grad level discussions. Thanks.
