JOURNAL OF PHYSICS A: MATHEMATICAL AND GENERAL (27 FEBRUARY 2004)
"… [The first edition] has become one of the most used and respected accounts of quantum theory … Gottfried and Yan’s book contains a vast amount of knowledge and understanding. As well as explaining the way in which quantum theory works, it attempts to illuminate fundamental aspects of the theory … For use with a well-constructed course (and, of course, this is the avowed purpose of the book; a useful range of problems is provided for each chapter), or for the relative expert getting to grips with particular aspects of the subject or aiming for a deeper understanding, the book is certainly ideal."
PHYSICS TODAY (August 2004)
"…especially useful for graduate students and professors who have time to go beyond the bare essentials of a topic and explore it in depth… I would recommend the book for its lucid discussions of less familiar topics alone, but the authors do not short-change the standard subjects… I expect the second edition of Gottfried and Yan to join my library of well thumbed-through texts."
From the reviews of the second edition:
"The book under review offers the reader in-depth physical and mathematical understanding of quantum mechanics. The book is the second edition of Gottfried’s Quantum mechanics. … Readers’ anticipations have finally been rewarded by the second edition of the earlier book, which is a complete revision covering most of the topics and much more … . The appendix contains the values of important physical constants, some useful operator identities … . The end notes at the conclusion of each chapter contain many useful references." (Howard E. Brandt, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2007 f)
