Lectures on Quantum Mechanics book.

Critical Acclaim for Lectures on Quantum Mechanics: "Dirac's lovely little book represents a set of lectures Dirac gave in 1964 at Yeshiva University, at a time when the great master could take advantage of hindsight. The clarity of Dirac's presentation is truly compelling (no mystery at all!). Very little background is required on the part of the reader. Dirac begins with the Hamiltonian method, and then passes to quantization in terms of physics

Only 12 left in stock (more on the way).

The Principles of Quantum Mechanics is an influential monograph on quantum mechanics written by Paul Dirac and first published by Oxford University Press in 1930.

Four concise, brilliant lectures on mathematical methods by the Nobel Laureate and quantum pioneer begin with an introduction to visualizing quantum theory through the use of classical mechanics. The remaining lectures build on that idea, examining the possibility of building a relativistic quantum theory on curved surfaces or flat surfaces.

LECTURES ON QUANTUM MECHANICS mechanics. It will be mainly about classical mechanics that I shall be talking in these lectures. Now you may think that that is really not good enough, because classical mechanics is not good enough to describe Nature. LECTURES ON QUANTUM MECHANICS for a solution of these equations, which gives us the u's as functions of the q's and the p's, say. There must exist a solution of this type, because if there were none it would mean that the Lagrangian equations of motion are inconsistent, and we are excluding that case.

The author of this concise, brilliant series of lectures on mathematical methods in quantum mechanics was one of the shining intellects in the field, winning a Nobel prize in 1933 for his pioneering work in the quantum mechanics of the atom. Beyond that, he developed the transformation theory of quantum mechanics (which made it possible to calculate the statistical distribution of certain variables), was one of the major authors of the quantum theory of radiation, codiscovered the Fermi-Dirac statistics, and predicted the existence of the positron.The four lectures in this book were delivered at Yeshiva University, New York, in 1964. The first, "The Hamiltonian Method," is an introduction to visualizing quantum theory through the use of classical mechanics. The remaining lectures build on that idea. "The Problem of Quantization" shows how one can start with a classical field theory and end up with a quantum field theory. In "Quantization on Curved Surfaces," Dirac examines the possibility of building a relativistic quantum theory on curved surfaces. He deduces that it is not possible, but it should be possible on flat surfaces. In the final lecture, "Quantization on Flat Surfaces," he concludes that "we can set up the basic equations for a quantum theory of the Born-Infeld electrodynamics agreeing with special relativity, but [not] with general relativity." Physics and chemistry students will find this book an invaluable addition to their libraries, as will anyone intrigued by the far-reaching and influential ideas of quantum mechanics.

We are in 1964, Dirac is building a relativistic quantum theory starting from classical mechanics. Just four lectures.But he assumes that you know a great deal of physics so this is a good brain workout for curious readers; anyone can survive few short lectures. He lost me several times but the text is warm and he took the time to explain isomorphisms between abstractions and its physical meanings. This is priceless against the usual dullness of textbooks. There is also a sense of surprise because he is never sure that his quantum theory will hold in the end. Often saying that we need a bit of luck to match the consistency conditions. It didn't because of "quite formidable difficulties". Take away: his notation is neat/elegant and "infinity usually does lead to trouble".
Dirac was one of the fathers of quantum theory. This text is a very brief and was a series of lectures he gave in the 60s. If you're interested in QM and have taken an introductory course it's a fun read for any previous student. I wouldn't use it in any instructional case.
P.A.M. Dirac has a lot to say; and everything he says is to the point - explaining everything step by step.
His approach in the YouTube lectures I've tried to watch is the same : but his verbal delivery makes them a chore to follow.
When I received this book in the mail and started to read: What A Difference! Here is the brilliant man's thoughts and his reasoning laid out: Clear and Concise.
Second semester Dynamics at the college level is required. Presumes knowledge of the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation of dynamic systems. Working through the equations with the author reveals numerous places were transference of "equivalent models" occur that are often as much based upon the author's metaphysics as they are of physics. The Copenhagen crew were all highly versed in philosophy and it bleed readily into their guiding assumptions.
Dirac's slim work is very general ~ but also very concise and precise and therefore the physical mathematics strategy and methods as presented are so direct as to be ever-valid ~ amounting to a short course on just HOW and WHY to construct [from appropriate classical theory] relativistic Lagrangian-based theory then directly pass into Hamiltonian-based quantum field theory [via Poisson brackets] ~ AND the nuances along the way. I cannot see flaws in Dirac's presentation as given. It seems that for any valid [and especially unified] physical field theory construction ~ it is necessary and sufficient to *pass thru the check-points* just as Dirac has outlined. A very clear and sharp analysis [via short lectures] in a modestly sized and priced slim work with no filler or fluff ~ just physical mathematics most directly derived and explained +++
Interesting topics and good presentation. The classic work by Dirac The Principles of Quantum Mechanics is certainly more thorough and is adequate for my purposes. Lectures gives you something to think about with some applications.
An exact book to show how to quantization.
