A footnote to Griffiths reads "In a deep sense all of the mysteries of quantum mechanics can be traced to the fact that position and momentum do not commute. Indeed, some authors take the canonical commutation relation as an(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); axiomof the theory, and use it toderive[itex]p = (\hbar / i)d/dx[\itex]". Could anyone recommend a text that does this?
