But it is necessarily not your case, perhaps you are going to have a good professor. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
In the Author’s Own Words: Meher Saba rated it it was amazing Dec 11, Again I can only state that Dirac’s material in general is not suitable for beginners due to his very high demands on what he assumes the reader already knows.
Beyond that, he developed the transformation theory of quantum mechanics which made it possible to calculate the statistical distribution of certain variableswas one of the major authors of the quantum theory of radiation, codiscovered the Fermi-Dirac statistics, and predicted the existence of the positron.

Lectures on Quantum Mechanics by Paul A.M. Dirac
What is your background? Poisson brackets are introduced to get simpler expressions. To understand the formalism of quantization, a succinct technical exposition from the genius. Benjamin rated it liked it Feb 16, Sichu rated it it was amazing Dec 27, The Quantum Theory of Radiation: Group Theory and Quantum Mechanics.

He deduces that it is not possible, but it should be possible on flat surfaces. It may turn out later to have an application.
In “Quantization on Curved Surfaces,” Dirac examines the possibility of building quanttum relativistic quantum theory on curved surfaces.
I am unfortunately only fourth-year undergraduate with somewhat ill-developed fundamentals. The Dover edition didn’t appear until Besides all that, although physics may not lecctures come a long way since it was published, teaching techniques certainly have.
However, this book can be quite a good eye-opener on some fundamental concepts. It is to be understood that the readers lecutres experts in the field or researchers well acquainted with some aspects of quantum field theory already. The author of this concise, brilliant series of lectures on mathematical methods in quantum mechanics was one of the shining intellects in the field, winning a Nobel prize in for his pioneering work in the quantum mechanics of the atom.
Both books cover near identical material, but have different examples and different approaches. Lwctures four lectures in this book were delivered at Yeshiva University, New York, in The last chapter on QED is somehow outdated, due to his aspect on renormalization.
