Quantum QM book for self-teaching

  1. Jun 7, 2016 #1
    I'm looking for help teaching myself QM. I am taking a a third year course in my degree in QM but I can't follow the lecturers notes/teaching style. The topics we will be covering are;

    Introduction: experimental facts that led to the development of quantum theory
    Waves and particles: the basic concepts of quantum mechanic
    Fundamentals and formalism of quantum mechanics
    The simple harmonic oscillator
    Angular momentum in QM

    If anybody could suggest a QM book that has plenty of examples and is helpful with the above topics I would be very grateful! (Thanks in advance)

    What you listed there is standard intro QM. Go to the library and look into the books there until you find a style that suits you.

    I personally like Cohen-Tannoudji's books.

    Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications by Zettili has a lot of worked out examples.
