Quantum Mechanics (Symmetries) deals with a particularly appealing and successful concept in advanced quantum mechanics

Quantum Mechanics (Symmetries) deals with a particularly appealing and successful concept in advanced quantum mechanics. After a brief introduction to symmetries in classical mechanics, the text turns to their relevance in quantum mechanics, the consequences of rotation symmetry, and the general theory of Lie groups.

Despite this somewhat unusual approach, this book does fill in some important gaps, at least for somebody like myself who is not a high-energy physicist. Other introductory books on group theory or symmetry in physics take most of the examples from atomic, molecular, and solid state physics. This book focuses more on particle physics. The discussion of Lie groups (p. 1-126) was at the right level for me to understand.

Quantum Dynamics" is a major survey of quantum theory based on Walter Greiner's long-running and highly successful courses at the University of Frankfurt. The key to understanding in quantum theory is to reinforce lecture attendance and textual study by working through plenty of representative and detailed examples. Firm belief in this principle led Greiner to develop his unique course and to transform it into a remarkable and comprehensive text. After a brief introduction to symmetries in classical mechanics, the text turns to their relevance in quantum mechanics, the consequences of rotation symmetry and the general theory of Lie groups.

Greiner Greiner· Muller. Quantum Mechanics Symmetries. Electrodynamics (in preparation). Walter Greiner Berndt Muller. Theoretical physics has become a many-faceted science. For the young student it is difficult enough to cope with the overwhelming amount of new scientific material that has to be learned, let alone obtain an overview of the entire field, which ranges from mechanics through electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, field theory, nuclear and heavy-ion science, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, and solid-state theory to elementary-particle physics.

My evaluation: The math sections in the book give u some basic notion of Lie groups but are NOT sufficient to fully understand the logic behind the scene everywhere. My advice is to read some good book in Lie groups in advance.

Greiner's lectures, which underlie these volumes, are internationally noted for their clarity, their completeness and for the effort that he has devoted to making physics an integral whole; his enthusiasm for his science is contagious and shines through almost every page. These volumes represent only a part of a unique and Herculean effort to make all of theoretical physics accessible to the interested student. Beyond that, they are of enormous value to the professional physicist and to all others working with quantum phenomena. Again and again the reader will find that, after dipping into a particular volume to review a specific topic, he will end up browsing, caught up by often fascinating new insights and developments with which he had not previously been familiar. Having used a number of Greiner's volumes in their original German in my teaching and research at Yale, I welcome these new and revised English translations and would recommend them enthusiastically to anyone searching for a coherent overview of physics.

Actually, this is a preliminary review. This is a rough topic. So far, I've made very slow progress. From my limited experience as an introductory student, I'd say the book is on par with others I've seen. It has more worked examples then other text books. So far it's also avoided the nightmare of not being able to tell v from v (script) when it's used for velocity and frequency in the same equation. I'll review more when I've read more.

The author has configured his book in a way that is the opposite to that of most books which address the role and application of group theory in quantum mechanics. Instead of first introducing the central axioms of group theory (especially those dealing with group character) and then going on to applications of these concepts in physics, this book goes through all sorts of examples of symmetry and invariance before laying out the major group theory concepts. In this 496 page book, it is not until page 327 that the concept of group character begins to be addressed.

Despite this somewhat unusual approach, this book does fill in some important gaps, at least for somebody like myself who is not a high-energy physicist. Other introductory books on group theory or symmetry in physics take most of the examples from atomic, molecular, and solid state physics. This book focuses more on particle physics.

The discussion of Lie groups (pp.81-126) was at the right level for me to understand. The treatments of proper Lorentz transformations (pp.88-91) and semisimple Lie groups (pp.93-100) were very helpful. Compact Lie groups and Casimir operators are briefly introduced on p.101.

I found the discussion of continuous groups (pp.338-340, 344-347) and the demarcation between compact groups and non-compact groups (such as the Lorentz group, pp.476-477) particularly helpful.

Chapter 9 (pp.291-325) is dedicated to Young Diagrams--where the authors provide the only treatment of this topic that I have been able to understand up to this point.

Though interesting and useful, this book is not suitable as one's first introduction to symmetry and group theory in quantum mechanics. For a good first introduction to this topic the reader should consider Tinkham's Group Theory and Quantum Mechanics.

I read a copy of the second edition. As the other reviewers state, there are tons of errata, some of them take a long time to figure out what the author means. The notation is not consistent either. And I agree with the other reviewers that you will get more out of it if you already know something about Lie groups and algebras from other sources. What made the book valuable to me is that I do have some knowledge about them and this book helped to understand many things that had eluded me in the past. Parts of it are too simple for me, and parts are over my head. However, most of the book was at just the right Goldilocks level to move me forward.
