This didactically unrivalled textbook and timeless reference by Nobel Prize Laureate Claude Cohen-Tannoudji separates essential underlying principles of quantum mechanics from specific applications and practical examples and deals with each of them in a different section. Chapters emphasize principles complementary sections supply applications. The book provides a qualitat ...more

A very linear and a good book to teach quantum mechanics. This collection of chapters written by various people and edited by Cohen may seem impersonal but it delivers its point with great clarity.

The books are a true delight and one very often ends up reading much more than what one has intended to look up.

The description for the books is pretty apt. This book is dense like no other Quantum Mechanical reference text.

This is the physicist's go-to book for quantum mechanics. It's in a 2 volume set, since it's expanded with several complements per chapter that segue to different topics. You'd think that it would make for a confusing read with seemingly diverging topics - but it helps to develop intuition (for instance, with many analogies to optics, particularly to polarization phenomenon). My favorite parts of the book were those which discussed circularized angular momentum raising and lowering operators.

من أحسن كتب ال-Quantum Mechanics و ده راجع لكون المؤلف حاصل على جايزة نوبل عام1997

من ضمن ال-Chapters العظيمة اللي في الكتاب Chapter بعنوان Spin 1/2 and 2 Level Systems شرح وفر و كافي ل-model من أهم ال-models المستخدمة في مجالات حديثة، ذي ال-Quantum Computing و Laser Physics . كمان ال-Treatment لل-Hydrogen atom و ال-Angular Momentum ممتازة!!

انصح بالكتاب ده لل-Undergrad و ال-Post-grad كمان.
