Introductory Quantum Mechanics by Liboff, Richard L

The prominent feature of this book is that there is a large collection of problems for students to work on, and it is a comprehensive textbook that covers all the topics that a Physics undergraduate needs to know. It is updated several times to include some of the recent topics and applications of Quantum Mechanics. Many topics are well-written, and the physics is clearly explained. While some sections of the book could be 4gh better, I think it is a great book overall either as a course textbook, as a reference or as a resource for practice problems.

I think the level of this book is a little higher than that of Griffiths Introduction to Quantum Mechanics 2nd Edition. The book starts quanntum a review on classical mechanics and a survey of the history of quantum mechanics.

Then the postulates of quantum mechanics, operators and Dirac notation are introduced. This is a more formal introduction of quantum mechanics. If you have just finished a course on Modern Physics, and you are moving to your first introducttory course on quantum mechanics, you will probably find that Griffiths is a better textbook because it starts with Schrodinger equation as a differential equation.

Liboff presents a steeper learning curve because it starts with the formalities of quantum mechanics, which is not quite easily understood at the introductody. I recommend using Griffiths introduftory a first textbook, and use Liboff in a second course on quantum mechanics. It is a matter of taste though, as I think some students like postulates and formalities all laid out clearly at the beginning.

Introductory Quantum Mechanics (4th Edition): Richard Liboff: : Books

If you are using Griffiths as the textbook, you can use Liboff as a reference because certain topics are missing in Griffiths and some physics are explained pretty well in Liboff.

The corresponding discussion in Griffiths is really lacking. My main complaint regarding Liboff is that some sections seem to be out of context, in particular the last few sections in chapter 7, 8 and For example, in chapter 11 about matrix mechanics, it seems like everything having a matrix is being thrown into this chapter.

This makes the topics difficult to understand because they are not placed in the right context. I believe these sections were not originally there, but were added when the book was revised. It would be a lot better if some of these sections can have their own chapters, for example the WKB approximation can be expanded into a chapter on semi-classical approach, and there can be a focused chapter on the quantum mechanics of solids and semiconductors.

It’s a bit old school but very complete. No book is as thick or helpful. Add this to your bookshelf. The examples and proofs leave out enough of steps and explanations that even a prepared and motivated student will get lost.


The book typically buries “the point” of it’s explanations at the end of pages of abstract and difficult math. No doubt about it, abstract and difficult math are unavoidable in teaching quantum mechanics, but by presenting “the point” early, it would give the student much needed guidance as they slog through the hard parts.

I first took quantum mechanics as an undergrad in I bought this copy to tutor my son through his college quantum mechanics class. I realize that it must be tough to write a good textbook on the subject, but there must be something better than this.

It actually came early and has been very helpful. One person found this helpful. All the essential info is in here. I don’t know what language it’s in but it is there. This is not a good introductory book. The book has tons of practice problems but doesn’t explain how to do half of them and doesn’t have a solutions manual.

I have been told that this is a fantastic “review” book for people who just need a refresher on the fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics though. It’s also the only Quantum Mechanics book I’ve ever had. If my midterm exam grade is any indication, then I think this book has more than met my expectations. See all 34 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
