This is unclear until now. In the book, there are several places of similar ambiguity. According to the definitions of the uncertainties of energy and time, we can check whether the energy-time uncertainty principle holds. However, the definitions seem to require some messy calculations. I think that, practically, we need an intuitive understanding of the energy-time uncertainty principle. The book focuses on this problem, and provides some examples; yet, the examples were not so helpful to me.
In particular, I had a difficulty in understanding why the uncertainty of time as defined can be interpreted as the amount of time it takes the expectation value of an operator it depends on a given operator to change by one standard deviation or as amount of time it takes in changing significantly page From here are good points.
As in his electrodynamics book, Griffiths is very kind in introducing new materials. For example, beginning Section 2. Despite its simplicity -- or rather, precisely because of its simplicity -- it serves as a wonderfully accessible test case for all the fancy machinery that comes later.
We'll refer back to it frequently. The most impressive thing about the book is that it teaches us that there is no free particle with a definite energy.
Introduction to Quantum Mechanics 2nd Edition David J. Griffiths
For example, an electron that interacts with nothing is a free particle. As far as I remember, no book pointed out this fact. There is another similar instance.
In the section introducing the energy-time uncertainty principle, it says. It treats t and x on a very unequal footing [ You don't go out and measure the "time" of a particle, as you might its position or its energy.
If you are interested in quantum mechanics, you probably know the paradox of the Schrodinger's cat. It's a very interesting paradox and, in each book, each author suggests a solution to the paradox. However, I couldn't totally agree with any author except Griffiths'.
His solution is concrete, reasonable and clear at least to me. Now, two questions. If anyone answers to them, I would really appreciate it. However, its actual calculations appear to be truly messy. I suspect that there could be a simpler method.
In particular, I want to know whether we can obtain the result using only the fundamental relations for angular momentum. In Problem 6. However, we already know that p is hermitian and for two commuting hermitian operators, their product is hermitian. What I don't understand is why we need to prove that they are hermitian.
To me, reading the book was a truly valuable experience.
Now, I am reading another quantum mechanics book as well so that to gain a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of quantum mechanics. After reading some critics, i feel like contributing to defend this text.
First, when is this book useful? Based on the American educational system: But most importantly: Now if you're a demanding or unusually advanced undergraduate student: You will get to read many other books about QM so don't ask this one to be what it's not claiming to be: This is not an advanced text and by no means sufficient by itself if you're really committed to studying physics; it is not completely introductory either in the sense that you won't learn about the history of the subject or won't get a purely axiomatic, rigorous approach either.
It is designed to make you USE quantum mechanics, sometimes yes! Now studying QM will always be a tricky business because there are so many ways to approach the subject and try to make sense of it, while our brain is truly wired for classical mechanics.
David Griffiths: Introduction to Quantum Mechanics
You will find the book that does it for you at some point but will have to read several of them no matter what: My graduate text was Weinberg, which is fantastic when you're an advanced grad student but almost unreadable when you're not and i heavily relied on Griffiths and some other, popular intermediate books, to help decipher it.
So this is a truly intermediate text and will take you to the meatier treatments of such as Sakurai, Merzbacher, Cohen-Tannoudji and others like a charm; if not, then just go straight to them. And if you're a Vulcan or a mathematician go straight to Weinberg! Good luck. Paperback Verified Purchase. It's a great book, but don't order the paperback version. It has different problems sets example: I don't even think it's the international version, because even that still has the right hw problems.
Unless you have Chegg or some other way to get the correct problems for homework, just pay the extra for the hardcover. Otherwise, it's a pretty good book for Quantum Mechanics. I had in college -- most were dry at best, and jumbled or out of date at worst. It's not often that I look back fondly on the physics textbooks I had in college -- most were dry at best, and jumbled or out of date at worst.
Griffiths is different. Griffiths is what physics textbooks should aspire to be. It reads as close to a novel as a physics text book can get which, okay, is not that close at all, but still , all without skimping on the meat of the subject. The problem sets are well organized, rigorous, logical, and interesting. I sold off most of my physics text books upon finishing the courses which required them, but I've kept my copy of Griffiths long past graduation, and recommend it to anyone who's interested in an intro to quantum and is willing to do the mathematical legwork to really understand the subject.
Unfortunately, the international edition I got had an error where all the important symbols and glyphs were misprinted e.
This is a huge problem, and these misprints caused me to waste hours of my time solving problems that didn't actually make any sense because some of the symbols were altered. If you have any commitment to quantum physics beyond a passing interest, you're really gonna want the more expensive hardcover edition of the book, which is what I bought after a month of frustration with this version.
