Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition, to provide a concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics, in this fully updated second edition of his successful textbook.

It covers a lot of topics, traditional as well as modern. It is advanced and seems like a good sequel to Merzbacher's QM. One person found this helpful. This was a classic for all ages before it was ever released - Steven Weinberg on Quantum Mechanics, what more can be said. It will be cherished by all physicist.

I met professor Weinberg while I was working on my Ph.

This text is a great study aid while taking quantum mechanics. Nice book on advanced QM! Great book with awesome packaging quality.

These authors have arrived to a similar conclusion, although with a different procedures based on Gersten decomposition of Dirac equation. This MD isomorphism can also be extended further to classical description of boson mass which was usually called Higgs boson[3], so it may offer a simpler route to describe the origin of mass compared to scale symmetry theory. But, it is known that Feynman famously declared that nobody understood completely Quantum Mechanics.

Therefore, one should be very careful before generalize his sum over history interpretation of QM toward Universe. The existence of a multiverse would have obvious religious implications [33], so contributions from theologians are important. More generally, cosmology addresses fundamental questions about the origin of matter and mind, which are clearly relevant to religion, so theologians need to be aware of the answers it provides. Rodney identifies several problems related to multiverse hypothesis:[17] Among the problems identified with the hypothesis are: 1 the existence of infinitely many universes depends critically on parameter choice; 2 the probability that any universe in an ensemble is fine-tuned for life is zero; 3 the physical realization of any ensemble will exclude an infinity of possibilities; 4 the hypothesis is untestable and unscientific; and 5 the hypothesis is not consistent with the amount of order found in this universe, nor with the persistence of order.

This is a dangerous tactic.

Successful scientific theories make predictions, which can then be tested. Finally, Ellis warned his fellow cosmologists:[18] I suggest that cosmologists should be very careful not make methodological proposals that erode the essential nature of science in their enthusiasm to support specific theories as being scientific, for if they do so, there will very likely be unintended consequences in other areas where the boundaries of science are in dispute.

Conclusion Despite its enormous practical success, many physicists and philosophers alike agree that the quantum theory is full of contradictions and paradoxes which are difficult to solve consistently. In the meantime, the problem of the formal connection between electrodynamics and wave mechanics has attracted the attention of a number of authors, especially there are some existing proofs on Maxwell-Dirac isomorphism.

Here the authors review three derivations of Maxwell- Dirac isomorphism i. In our opinion the above arguments of Maxwell-Dirac isomorphism can be a simpler alternative compared to the metaphysically problematic MWI hypothesis. This MD isomorphism can also be extended further to classical description of boson mass which was usually called Higgs boson [3], so it may be a simpler option compared to scale symmetry theory.

It is our hope that discussions presented in this paper have made clear that the entire Many Worlds Interpretation of QM is not required, once we begin to ask what is the physical meaning of wave function, instead of accepted blindly the macroscale implication of path integral interpretation of QM. This paper was inspired by an old question: Is there a consistent and realistic description of wave function, both classically and quantum mechanically?

It can be expected that the above discussions will shed some lights on that old problem especially in the context of physical meaning of quantum wave function. This is reserved for further investigations. Elementary Derivation of the Dirac equation. Minimum mass of a composite boson.
