Steven Weinberg demonstrates his exceptional insight in this concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics for graduate students.
"Steven Weinberg, a Nobel Laureate in physics, has written an exceptionally clear and coherent graduate-level textbook on modern quantum mechanics. This book presents the physical and mathematical formulations of the theory in a concise and rigorous manner. The equations are all explained step-by-step, and every term is defined. He presents a fresh, integrated approach to teaching this subject with an emphasis on symmetry principles. Weinberg demonstrates his finesse as an excellent teacher and author."

New edition of a classic textbook, introducing students to electricity and magnetism, featuring SI units and additional examples and problems.
"Although the basic physics remains largely unchanged, the Purcell and Morin book has many clarifying discussions based on those experimental results, and most chapters end with current applications and a summary. Solutions to the problems represent roughly one-quarter of the text—they are a most welcome addition, particularly for self-study. (Purcell wrote out a solution manual by hand—mainly for instructors!—to accompany his first edition.) "
