### Summary

This best-selling classic provides a graduate-level, non-historical, modern introduction of quantum mechanical concepts. The author, J. J. Sakurai, was a renowned theorist in particle theory. This revision by Jim Napolitano retains the original material and adds topics that extend the book's usefulness into the 21st century. The introduction of new material, and modification of existing material, appears in a way that better prepares readers for the next course in quantum field theory. Readerse will still find such classic developments as neutron interferometer experiments, Feynman path integrals, correlation measurements, and Bellrs"s inequality. The style and treatment of topics is now more consistent across chapters. TheSecond Editionhas been updated for currency and consistency across all topics and has been checked for the right amount of mathematical rigor. Fundamental Concepts, Quantum Dynamics, Theory of Angular Momentum, Symmetry in Quantum Mechanics, Approximation Methods, Scattering Theory, Identical Particles, Relativistic Quantum Mechanics, Appendices, Brief Summary of Elementary Solutions to Shruml;odingerrs"s Wave Eqation.Intended for those interested in gaining a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics
