## Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear friends,

Can "Modern Quantum Mechanics" by Sakurai be used as a first introduction to the quantum mechanics, given that I have a professor who can guide my reading and supplementary books? I recently got an opportunity for a reading course in rigorous QM, and I thought Sakurai would be a good book; my mentor let me choose my own book. I can devote 8hrs/week. If Sakurai can be used as a first introduction to acquire reasonable understanding of QM, what books make a good supplement to Sakurai?

I know single-variable analysis, axiomatic set theory, abstract linear algebra, set-theoretic topology, and modern algebra.
