The course comprises of 27+1 lectures. There are 3 problem sheets for MT, (the last one should be done over the Christmas vacation). A collection paper for week 0 of HT 2023 will be made available to tutors.

## Synopsis
1. Amplitudes
and quantum states |
BooksI find the following books useful: - The Physics of Quantum Mechanics: James Binney and David Skinner (OUP) [co-authored by a previous lecturer of this course; I will follow it fairly closely.]
- Modern Quantum Mechanics: J.J.
Sakurai (Addison-Wesley) [clear, modern and concise
but perhaps a bit too advanced.]
- The Principles of Quantum Mechanics: P. A. M. Dirac (OUP) [a classic by the great man himself, first published in 1930 and still one of the best treatments out there.]
- Quantum Mechanics: Albert
Messiah (Dover) [book I used as an undergrad; not
bad.]
- Quantum Mechanics: L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz (Elsevier) [if you ever want to pass the "Theoretical Minimum" this is the book for you.]
- Quantum Mechanics: Eugen
Merzbacher (Wiley) [someone nicked my copy, I want it
back!]
