Engineering QM Books for Engineers

  1. Jan 6, 2015 #1
    Hey guys,

    I love to read and learn about Quantum Physics and have been looking for good suggestions on books. I don't want a complete beginners book, I am an Electrical Engineer so I have a decent background in math and physics, by no means am I am expert. I love all the theory behind QM but I am also interested in the math.

    Does anyone have any good suggestions for books that are maybe somewhere in between novice and advanced.

    Quantum Mechanics for Electrical Engineers is a great new book. I've read the first few chapters for fun and it's good stuff, and a lot of MATLAB if you like that kind of thing. It isn't a "general" QM text because it focuses on the aspect of QM most relevant to semiconductors. I've also read the Sakurai text above it is is also excellent.
