The Greiner Series.

  1. Jan 6, 2005 #1
    Does anyone have any experience with the Greiner series, specifically his introductory Quantum text ? I have heard it being touted as the new Landau and was wondering if the series is undergraduate friendly. I am well aware that there are quite a few typos (supposably corrected in later editions) but the prospect of examples worked out in their entirety is rather appealing.

    No,they cannot be compared with the L-L series,for thousands of reasons.They are good books,right now i have the SM course on my desk and probably will use it for the SM exam.
    They're pretty advanced,i don't know what u mean by "undergraduate friendly".But for QM & QFT i'm sure there are dozens of better books.

    By undergraduate friendly, I mean something that can be read and understood, to some extent, by an undergraduate. Specifically and undergraduate who is going to be enrolled in a QM course.
