    I want a QM textbook which introduces detail knowledge of density matrix and trace (i.e. the average), who can recommend one for me? Thank you.

    At what level?

    Cohen-Tannoudji et al. has a good discussion of the density matrix. The book by Townsend also addresses the topic.

    I checked, and Sakurai also covers the topic. At your level, any of the references I have given will be accessible.
