Learning Quantum Mechanics doesn’t have to be hard

What if there was a way to learn Quantum Mechanics without all the usual fluff and mystification? What if there were a book that allowed you to see the whole picture and not just tiny parts of it?

Thoughts like this are the reason that No-Nonsense Quantum Mechanics now exists.

What will you learn from this book?

  • Get to know the fundamental quantum features — grasp how different nature works at the level of elementary particles.
  • Learn to describe Quantum Mechanics mathematically — understand the origin and meaning of the most important quantum equations: the Schrödinger equation + the canonical commutation relations.
  • Master the most important quantum systems — read step-by-step calculations and understand the general algorithm we use to describe them.
  • Get an understanding you can be proud of — learn why there are alternative frameworks to describe Quantum Mechanics and how they are connected to the standard wave description.

No-Nonsense Quantum Mechanics is the most student-friendly book on Quantum Mechanics ever written.

Here’s why.

  • First of all, it's is nothing like a formal university lecture.  Instead, it’s like a casual conservation with a more experienced student. This also means that nothing is assumed to be “obvious” or “easy to see”.
  • Each chapter, each section, and each page focusses solely on the goal to help you understand. Nothing is introduced without a thorough motivation and it is always clear where each equation comes from.
  • The book contains no fluff since unnecessary content quickly leads to confusion. Instead, it ruthlessly focusses on the fundamentals and makes sure you’ll understand them in detail.

The primary focus on the readers’ needs is also visible in dozens of small features that you won’t find in any other textbook

  • In total, the book contains more than 100 illustrations that help you understand the most important concepts visually.
  • In each chapter, you’ll find fully annotated equations and calculations are done carefully step-by-step. This makes it much easier to understand what’s going on in.
  • Whenever a concept is used that was already introduced previously there is a short sidenote that reminds you where it was first introduced and often recites the main points. In addition, there are summaries at the beginning of each chapter that make sure you won’t get lost.




正是出於這樣的想法,才有了《No-Nonsense Quantum Mechanics》這本書。


- 瞭解基本的量子特性——掌握不同自然界在基本粒子層面上的運作方式。
- 學會以數學方式描述量子力學——理解最重要的量子方程式的起源和意義:薛定諤方程式+正規交換關係。
- 掌握最重要的量子系統——逐步閱讀計算並理解我們用來描述它們的一般演算法。
- 獲得一種令你引以為傲的理解——瞭解為什麼有替代的框架來描述量子力學,以及它們如何與標準波動描述相關聯。

《No-Nonsense Quantum Mechanics》是有史以來最適合學生的量子力學書籍。


- 首先,它完全不像正式的大學講座。相反,它就像與一位經驗豐富的學生進行的隨意對話。這也意味著不會假設任何事情是“明顯的”或“容易理解的”。
- 每個章節、每個部分和每個頁面都專注於幫助你理解的目標。沒有任何內容是沒有充分動機介紹的,並且每個方程式的來源都清晰明確。
- 這本書沒有冗餘內容,因為不必要的內容很容易導致混亂。相反,它無情地專注於基礎知識,並確保你能詳細理解它們。


- 總共有100多個插圖,幫助你以視覺方式理解最重要的概念。
- 每個章節中都有完全註釋的方程式,計算都是逐步進行的。這使得理解正在發生的事情變得更加容易。
- 每當使用先前介紹過的概念時,都會有一個簡短的旁注提醒你它最初是在哪裡介紹的,並經常重述主要觀點。此外,每個章節開始時都有摘要,確保你不會迷失方向。
