This book grew out of Gordon Baym's Quantum Mechanics lectures at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the late 1960's. As such, it is really more suitable as a companion text rather than as a primary text. That said, I found that Baym provides a degree of physical intuition that is not found in the standard texts.

Lectures on quantum mechanics: Gordon Baym (Lecture notes and supplements in physics) Unknown Binding – 1974. by Gordon Baym (Author).

These lecture notes comprise a three-semester graduate course in quantum mechanics at the University of Illinois. In retrospect these lecture notes seemed sufficiently interesting to warrant their publication in this format.

Lecture Notes for Students: the basic equation of quantum mechanics are presented. Backgrounds in quantum mechanics and statisitical physics are assumed.

The Feynman Lectures on Physics is a physics textbook based on some lectures by Richard P. Feynman, a Nobel laureate who has sometimes been called "The Great Explainer". The lectures were presented before undergraduate students at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), during 1961–1963. The book's co-authors are Feynman, Robert B. Leighton, and Matthew Sands.

These lecture notes comprise a three-semester graduate course in quantum mechanics at the University of Illinois. There are a number of texts which present the basic topics very well; but since a fair quantity of the material discussed in my course was not available to the students in elementary quantum mechanics books, I was asked to prepare written notes. In retrospect these lecture notes seemed sufficiently interesting to warrant their publication in this format. The notes, presented here in slightly revised form, consitutute a self-contained course in quantum mechanics from first principles to elementary and relativistic one-particle mechanics. Prerequisite to reading these notes is some familiarity with elementary quantum mechanics, at least at the undergraduate level. Preferably the reader should already have met the uncertainty principle and the concept of a wave function. Prerequisites also include sufficient acquaintance with complex cariables to be able to do simple contour integrals and to understand words such as "poles" and "branch cuts." An elementary knowledge of Fourier transforms and series is necessary. I also assume an awareness of classical electrodynamics.

I am extremely unhappy with the version of this text that I have received. The version that I received has many missing characters and faded information within the text. For example sometimes I cannot tell if a letter is bolded (since it is a vector) or regular font (for scalars) in equation where the nature of the variable isn't obvious. Friends of mine have received the same textbook, but have not had this problem. On page 117, a plus sign turned into a muliplication sign because of the lack of decent print quality. I do not think that you should buy this textbook from this seller given the incredibly poor print quality. I paid for a new version of a graduate textbook to avoid this issue, not run head first into it. See pictures for examples!

Old is gold. There are some very useful material here such as scattering theory and perturbative techniques etc.
Jusari
The font is unreadable! Buy other versions. Also, the index is worthless.
Ballagar
Perhaps I'm biased towards treatments like Sakurai, but this book was way too dedicated to basic wave mechanics and belabored wave treatment instead of more technical and formal treatments.
Gigafish
Bad quality printing. I have the original textbook since 1978 and bought this one to replace it. Although be a very nice quantum mechanics textbook for PhD students, the quality printing of this edition is very bad!
Dreladred
i bought it because my professor chose it as our textbook
it is a good book anyway

This book grew out of Gordon Baym's Quantum Mechanics lectures at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the late 1960's. As such, it is really more suitable as a companion text rather than as a primary text. That said, I found that Baym provides a degree of physical intuition that is not found in the standard texts. I especially like Baym's discussion of creation and annihilation operators as well as Fermi's Golden Rule. Baym also provides a good treatment of the Klein Gordon and Dirac equations, the relativistic analogues of the Schrodinger equation for Bosons and Fermions. In general, Baym seems to have the intention of supplying the reader with the necessary preparation for the study of quantum field theory--an approach understandable in light of the fact that Julian Schwinger (one of the pioneers of quantum field theory and co-winner of the 1965 Noble Prize and physics for quantum electrodynamics along with Feynman and Tomonaga) was Baym's Ph.D. adviser.

Emblematic of this book is its discussion of the topic "Angular Momentum and The Harmonic Oscillator" (pp.380-386) within Chapter 17 which covers "Rotations and Tensor Operators." Based on a 1952 Atomic Energy Commission (What the Department of Energy used to be called) report by Julian Schwinger, angular momentum is modeled as two harmonic oscillators, each corresponding to its own creation and annihilation operator which moves the value of each oscillator up or down by a spin 1/2 "quantum". The total number of spin quanta shared by the two oscillators is seen to correspond to the angular momentum quantum number j. The difference between the number of spin quanta in each oscillator then corresponds to the quantum number m. Of course there are various commutation relations between the operators and before you know it, you have a clever way of calculating rotation matrix elements. There is even an amusing post-script that a scheme involving three harmonic oscillators corresponding to "quarks" can be used to generate the SU(3) symmetries of strongly interacting particles. Back when Baym first penned this textbook he observed that "It is an open question whether the quarks are real particle or not".
Come on, it's not that bad. It has an interesting way of taking your natural understandinig of polarized light as 2 orthogonal states to try to give you some insight into that as a quantum mechanical system and then generalizing that understanding to other QM systems. Baym learned his advanced quantum mechanics at Harvard, where they would use his book as the closest text to what they were teaching for a number of years (at least when taught by his instructor). It was a reasonable text, used at Illinois and Harvard, which had good physics departments.
