QM Text with many worked examples

  1. Sep 8, 2011 #1
    I'm looking for a text with loads of worked examples , plenty of exercises,
    and since I'm working alone , a solutions manual - or some access to the answers - is vital.
    Currently working Griffiths.
    The only way to master this demon is by doing dozens of problems.
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    [ My background is primary degree in maths.+ masters in theoretical physics BUT 40 years ago.my ambition is to "understand" QED/QFT before I <d|I|e> ]

    Although many of Schaum's outlines are worthless, their QM book is quite good. You might want to look at that.

    Practical Quantum Mechanics, by Siegfried Flugge

    There is an excellent set of lecture notes by Prof. John Norbury on both quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. These are freely available online. Just google norbury+physics.
    In the quantum mechanics lecture notes he essentially follows Griffiths' book but there are a lot of problems and complete solutions to them.
    Moreover, these are written at an undergraduate level, so are relatively easy to understand.

    Thanks for the suggestions
    The Norbury notes look very interesting , however the diagrams are missing
    when I unzip the .rar files. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Unfortunately that's a problem and I don't know a way out.
    Maybe you could email Norbury and request him to send a pdf with diagrams.
