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 a 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". July 18, - Published on Amazon.
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. May 3, - Published on Amazon. Dirac was one of the fathers of quantum theory.
Lectures on Quantum Mechanics for Mathematics Students
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. October 5, - Published on Amazon. 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. The presentation makes use of limited mathematics while focusing on the personal and historical perspectives of one of the principal architects of quantum theory whose career in physics spans 75 years.
A video introduction and appreciation are provided by Professor Silvan S.
