For someone who's bored with wave mechanics, would you suggest studying Heisenberg's matrix mechanics (which was the(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); firstformulation)?

Are there any major/conceptual differences? (except one talks about waves and the other doesn't!)

And for someone who wants to study it, what books/online docs would you suggest? Damn, all QM I have ever found covers wave-mechanics majorly, and some briefly mention matrix mechanics when the title hits angular momentum.
