Math for Modern Quantum Mechanics J.J. Sakurai

  1. Jun 14, 2015 #1
    Hi Guys,

    I am taking a quantum mechanics course next semester that follows Sakurai's book. I was wondering if there was some mathematics I should study over break in preparation for this course.

    I have taken so far:
    Calc 1-3
    Linear Algebra
    An elementary course in group theory

    Ill be taking a complex analysis class concurrently.

    It's a two semester course that covers the entire book.

    Read the first chapter of Shankar and also use McIntyre as a supplemental text.

    A supplemental text to Shankar or to Sakurai?

    To Sakurai.
