Principles of quantum mechanics by Ramamurti Shankar( Book )
57 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Reviews from the First Edition: "An excellent text The postulates of quantum mechanics and the mathematical underpinnings are discussed in a clear, succinct manner." (American Scientist) "No matter how gently one introduces students to the concept of Diracs bras and kets, many are turned off. Shankar attacks the problem head-on in the first chapter, and in a very informal style suggests that there is nothing to be frightened of." (Physics Bulletin) Reviews of the Second Edition: "This massive text of 700 and odd pages has indeed an excellent get-up, is very verbal and expressive, and has extensively worked out calculational details---all just right for a first course. The style is conversational, more like a corridor talk or lecture notes, though arranged as a text. It would be particularly useful to beginning students and those in allied areas like quantum chemistry." (Mathematical Reviews) R. Shankar has introduced major additions and updated key presentations in this second edition of Principles of Quantum Mechanics. New features of this innovative text include an entirely rewritten mathematical introduction, a discussion of Time-reversal invariance, and extensive coverage of a variety of path integrals and their applications. Additional highlights include: - Clear, accessible treatment of underlying mathematics - A review of Newtonian, Lagrangian, and Hamiltonian mechanics - Student understanding of quantum theory is enhanced by separate treatment of mathematical theorems and physical postulates - Unsurpassed coverage of path integrals and their relevance in contemporary physics The requisite text for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students, Principles of Quantum Mechanics, Second Edition is fully referenced and is supported by many exercises and solutions. The books self-contained chapters also make it suitable for independent study as well as for courses in applied disciplines
Basic training in mathematics : a fitness program for science students by Ramamurti Shankar( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Based on the author's course at Yale University, the book addresses the widening gap found by Professor Shankar and his colleagues between the mathematics needed for upper-level science study and the knowledge possessed by incoming students. This superb text organizes the necessary mathematics background into a one-semester course covering such topics as:- A review of calculus- Infinite series- Functions of a complex variable- Vector calculus- Matrices- Linear vector spaces- Differential equationsnbsp; Get in shape for your future science studies with this outstanding text."--Back cover

Bharat and a friend, Kapil, decide to dress incognito and mingle with the general public and find out if there is anyone about to dethrone the emperor. What they find out will not only change their lives, but will endanger the lives of their loved ones as well
Credible execution of bounded-time parallel systems with delayed diagnosis by Ramamurti Shankar( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
We apply the method to the process structure deriving from parallel, bounded-time decision systems and show through an exact Markov analysis that the method will yield a very credible system. We then introduce a much simpler but approximate Markov model that facilitates credibility analysis over a large range of parameters and applications."
