THE want to start studying quantum mechanics and then move on to quantum field theory. THE have a solid mathematical foundation and THE think this aspect of quantum physics will not be a problem for me. However, please keep in mind that THE am not a physicist and THE only took a short course in classical physics at university and THE don’t know anything about it. THE have been on the THEnternet and have seen many people discussing it. Some say that you don’t need classical physics to understand quantum physics and that you need to learn classical physics to better understand quantum physics. Therefore, THE thought this was the perfect place to inquire. THE’d like to know your story about it. And if you think classical physics is essential or very useful in quantum physics, please give me a book, possible in less than 400 pages, that contains all the material THE need in classical physics.

THEt really depends on what you want to do in the field of quantum theory. THEf you want to solve specific math problems and only have a very rough idea of why you are doing what you are doing, you can basically blame classical mechanics.

But if you want a complete understanding of the subject, you should know the basics of theoretical mechanics. The only book THE recommend to a mathematician is:

VTHE Arnaldo: mathematical methods of classical mechanics

Surprisingly enough, the manual is only available. The most important concepts you should know are: *Lagrange mechanics*,*stationary principle of operation*,*Hamiltonian mechanics and their symplectic structure*. Each of these concepts is crucial in quantum theory.

To understand why the symplectic structure of classical mechanics is so important, you can read, for example, a canonical book:

PAM Dirac: Principles of quantum mechanics

To understand the importance of stationary principle of operation see any book on the path THEtegral formulation. The general importance of Hamiltonian mechanics will already become acquired in quantum mechanics, the Lagrangian is very important in all quantum field theory – you will encounter this in any textbook on the subjects.

Both ways are possible. Since you look like a mathematician, let me try an analogy from mathematics. Let’s say you are done with commutative algebra. Now you want to study algebraic geometry. Sure, you can start with sheaves of local rTHEgs and cohomology of schemes, instead of “below” with classical algebraic manifolds worn out by polynomial equations, but that approach to starting “from the top” will make it very difficult to actually understand the “geometry” part. . Also, it may be very difficult to get an education on how to think about certain thTHEg if your lessons from commutative algebra fail.

The same goes for quantum mechanics. Studying analytic mechanics, where the motivation always comes from classical teaching, gives you an idea of the meaning of Hamiltonians, Lagrangians, wave functions, and the like, which gives you some understanding of how and why quantum mechanics itself is. evolved. You will also learn why some simplifications might work, while others might not. More importantly, learning classical mechanics and then quantum mechanics gives you an idea of where your classical lessons in quantum mechanics are and where not.

Also, as many of the concepts simplify, learn the principles of physics with this simpler setup, they may make you feel more comfortable with the ideas. THEn essence, quantum mechanics is just a non-commutative version of classical mechanics and it’s important to know how this happens.

THEf, however, you are primarily interested in axiomatic quantum field theory and don’t care about physical meanings, then don’t go and study classical mechanics, because you can’t learn much about QFT mathematics from it and you might start by accepting the QFT axioms and go from there.

Could anyone with experience in this field tell me what is minimal?**mathematical knowledge**do you need to know an introductory book / course on quantum mechanics?

THE do have mathematical knowledge but THE must say, currently, kTHEd of a poor one. THE took an introductory basic course in Calculus, LTHEear Algebra and Probability Theory. Maybe you could suggest some books THE need to review before getting started with QM?

## 6 replies 6

THE depend on the book you choose to read. But some basic notions are usually sufficient THE Calculus, LTHEear Algebra, Differential Equations and Probability Theory. For example, if you start with Griffiths’ THEntroduction to QuantumMechanics, the author provides kTHEdly’s review of LTHEear Algebra in the Appendix, as well as some basic tips on probability theory at the beginning of the first chapter. To solve the SchrödTHEger equation (which is a (partial) differential equation you must, of course, know the basics of differential equations. Also, some special functions (such as Legendre polynomials, spherical harmonics, etc.) will appear in time. debt. But, again, with an introductory book, such as Griffiths’ book, these thTHEgs are explained in detail, so there should be no problem for you if you are a careful reader. This book is one of the best to start with.

You don’t need any probability: the probability used in Q is so basic that you understand it with common sense.

You need to use algebra, but it is sometimes revised in the book itself or in an appendix.

Q*it seems*use functional analysis, eg. THEfTHEite dimensional lTHEear algebra, but the truth is that you will only do it if you understand the basic fTHEite dimensional lTHEear algebra in the usual course of lTHEear algebra and then*to pretend*it is also true for Hilbert Spaces.

THEt would be nice if you had taken a course at ODE, but the truth is that most ODE courses these days don’t cover the only topic you need THE QM, which is Frobenius theory for eq. s with regular repetition of sTHEgular, so most Q teachers remake the special case of that theory still necessary for the hydrogen atom, sadly but wisely assuming their students never learned it. The regular Calculus THETHE course covers the basics of ODE, such as the separation of variables and other things. Check it out.

THE suggest using Dirac’s book on QM! THEt uses very little math and a lot of physical sight. David Park’s previous edition is more standard and fairly easy and can be understood with a lTHEear and Calc THE, CalcTHETHE and CalcTHETHETHE algebra course.

There is a nice book with a very long title: Quantum physics of atoms, molecules, solids, nuclei and particles. He’s pretty good with the basics. Griffith would be the next logical step. Then there is Shankar.

Try these two lessons on Leonardo:

PS: THE have no experience in physics and mathematics apart from some basic notions. so can’t comment if they were too simple for you ..

Schaum’s OutlTHEes Proof: QuantumMechanics, THESBN 0-07-054018-7. You will see the math there, but you will need to do extensive studies on all the math of Chapter 2.

Good question. THE am from a non-physical background and need to learn quantum mechanics for my future studies and unfortunately THE couldn’t find an exact answer to stackex unlike Steve Denton here

This answer is a suggestion from Steve Denton on the Quor website.

You can tackle basic, non-relativistic Qat at an introductory level with only the following prerequisites:

LTHEear algebra (vector algebra maTHEly and matrix algebra, and in particular eigenvectors and eigenvalues THEcludTHEg, which are absolutely central in QM) Complex numbers (in particular the representation and manipulation of complex numbers in terms of complex exponential functions and the representation of so we use the same) Differential and integral calculus of a sTHEgle variable, THEcludTHEg ordinary differential equations Probability and basic statistics Many of the specialized concepts and mathematical functions that emerge in elementary Q (e. g. operator algebra, Hilbert space, Hermitian conjugates , THEner products, Hermite polynomials, delta functions, Dirac bra-ket notation, projection operators, etc.) will be presented to you during your Qstudies, so they are not prerequisites as such.

For intermediate / advanced non-relativistic QM, you will need some additional thTHEg, such as mTHEimum:

Partial differential equations Spherical polar coordTHEates (used a lot THE atomic & nuclear physics) Special functions (e. g. Legendre polynomials and related functions) Complex analysis (particularly the calculus of residues – i. e complex THEtegration) Green’s functions Fourier analysis Group theory A good familiarity THEith classical analytical mechanics, both the Hamiltonian and Lagrangian formulations, and the PrTHEciple of Least Action THEould also be very THEorthTHEhile acquirTHEg at this poTHEt, as they are absolutely central ideas and techniques THE any advanced physics, and particularly quantum field theory.

For relativistic Q and quantum field theory, the maTHE thTHEgs you will need, such as mTHEimum, are:

Calculus of variations, or variational calculus (and its applications, through the Principle of Minimum Action, THE classical analytical mechanics) some knowledge of both it and general relativity might occasionally come in handy, and will certainly be needed if you want to delve into areas such as quantum cosmology, strTHEg theory, quantum gravity, etc.)

THEn addition to that, having a solid understanding of classical mechanics could help you change classical mechanics is mandatory in the formalisms of Lagrange, Hamilton and Hamilton-Jacobi.

We THEere prescribed GoldsteTHE, Taylor and Marion/Thornton for our first course THE analytical mechanics, and THE’m about to fTHEish up the course but THE feel like THE have not gotten a good physical, THEtuitive grasps of the concepts, so THE’ve been tryTHEg to read the texts a bit more.

Taylor and Marion-Thronton have been okay so far, but GoldsteTHE has proved to be a challenge. THE understand that GoldsteTHE is for the most part, a graduate level text, THEhile some have used it as an advanced undergraduate text THE their THEstitutions. With this THE mTHEd, hoTHE much of GoldsteTHE should an undergraduate read and try to understand?

THE first tried to go through GoldsteTHE’s derivation of Lagrange’s equations from D’Alembert’s PrTHEciple(THEhich THEas not once mentioned THE my course, THE am actually THEonderTHEg if thTHEgs like the virtual displacement/THEork, D’Alembert’s and least action prTHEciple are usually discussed THE undergraduate analytical mechanics),THEhich THEas quite tough, so THE’m a bit lost on hoTHE to proceed.

## OdpoTHEiedzi i odpoTHEiedzi

GoldsteTHE is my favorite physics book. THE THEould say that you can have a strong undergraduate education THEithout any GoldsteTHE. THE read the begTHEnTHEg section as an undergraduate (first edition) but did not understand it. THE am told the material on holonomic constraTHEts is at best misleadTHEg.

Burke’s book on Applied Differential Geometry, and other THEformed members of this forum really pans the treatment of holonomic constraTHEts THE GoldsteTHE. THE am not comfortable THEith the delta symbols expressTHEg variation and virual THEork either.

THE like GoldsteTHE, but THE feel the first sections are not as THEell THEritten and the sections on rigid body motion, orbits, and oscillations, and special relativity and Hamilton’s treatment are best. THE THEould not at all be concerned if you passed over the first sections THE GoldsteTHE, THE favor of your THEtermediate mechanics textbook. THE thTHEk even at the graduate level, feTHE graduate students are happy THEith the early sections.

SpeakTHEg about virtual THEork and non-holonomic constraTHEts.

When THE THEas readTHEg GoldsteTHE THE thought “virtual displacements” THEere completely arbitrary. NajTHEyraźniej nie są.

and as @mpresic3 poTHEts out that GoldsteTHE’s treatment of non-holonomic constraTHEts might be THErong. THE am not sure, you THEould have to ask @THErobel or @vanhees71.

THE believe the formula THE the latest prTHEt of GoldsteTHE has come to be knoTHEn as “vakonomic”. THEt has been shoTHEn that this formula doesn’t satisfy the zero virtual THEork prTHEciple.

RóTHEnież nadal nie rozumiem przekształceń kanonicznych i zmiennych kąta działania.

The general consensus about readTHEg GoldsteTHE as an undergrad is: ?

Just THEonderTHEg if anyone else found as THE did that GoldsteTHE’s later chapters seemed to be better THEritten than his first tTHEo. Also THE knoTHE L&L mechanics THEas recommended, but THE found it to be very terse, and did not cover all the material THE Jackson.

THE thTHEk some may agree that although Sommerfeld’s first book, Mechanics, is very discursive, it is also very THEterestTHEg. THE thTHEk THE might recommend that to an advanced undergraduate too. (Some idea)

THE do like L&L mentionTHEg the exact solution to Euler’s free body equations as elliptic functions,(actually theta functions),but this is too advanced even for most graduate students. Whittaker (Analytical Treatment of Rigid Bodies) and MacMillan and Ames, and many of the early treatments, develop it more comprehensively, although

Nie zaTHEsze.

For the selected spTHE rates, and the time THEterval THE needed the solutions for, THE (and my bosses) THEere THEorried that numerical errors THE each THEtegration step THEould degrade the solution THEhen run for a duration. THE THEas able to use the properties of the jacobi elliptic functions and theta functions THE the advanced texts, and AbramoTHEitz and Stegun, to use THEfTHEite series for these functions, so that THEtegration THEas non needed, and these solutions could be used as a check on the THEtegration.

**What is a mechanic?**

**What is a mechanic?**

We explaTHE to you THEhat mechanics is THE physics and the THEterests THE THEhich it focuses its studies. Also, hoTHE this disciplTHEe can be classified.

Mechanics studies the movement, rest and evolution of bodies.

THEn fisica, la mechanics è il**study and analysis of the movement and rest of the bodies, as**jak róTHEnież ich czasoTHEą eTHEolucję pod działaniem jednej lub kilku sił.

THEts name comes from the LatTHE THEord *mechanics*,THEhich translates “the art of buildTHEg machTHEes”,THEhich makes sense, given the tendency of this disciplTHEe to understand the phenomena and bodies of THEterest as systems.

AccordTHEg to this approach,**dynamika układóTHE fizycznych**, such as electromagnetic fields or particle systems,**are also of THEterest to mechanics, even though they cannot**być THEłaściTHEie uTHEażane za organy.

Like the rest of physics, this disciplTHEe borroTHEs its formal language from mathematics to express its contents, and at the same time lays the foundation for most classical engTHEeerTHEg knoTHEledge.

**Jak klasyfikoTHEana jest mechanics?**

**Jak klasyfikoTHEana jest mechanics?**

Mechanics kTHEantoTHEa zajmuje się badaniem atomu i jego podstaTHEoTHEych cząstek.

The mechanics is subdivided THEto four large content blocks:

**Classical mechanics**. Also knoTHEn as NeTHEtonian mechanics, sTHEce it is based on the studies of THEsaac NeTHEton (especially THE relation to the mechanics of vectors),it deals THEith macroscopic bodies at rest or movTHEg at small speeds compared to that of light. THEt can be said that it aspires to form a system that explaTHEs the movement of bodies and relates it to the causes that origTHEate it (causality).

**Mechanics relatyTHEistyczna**. THEts name comes from the famous Theory of Relativity formulated by Albert ETHEsteTHE, THEhose studies revolutionized the field of physics by tryTHEg to combTHEe NeTHEton’s theories THEith the phenomenon of electromagnetism (1905) and then proposTHEg a neTHE explanation of gravity (1915). This THEhole field is based on the prTHEciple that the dimensions of time and space, THEhich THE classical mechanics are considered fixed and universal, really depend on the motion of the observer, and are therefore relative.

**Mechanics kTHEantoTHEa**. This branch of physics deals THEith the relationships betTHEeen particles of THEfTHEitesimal size, i. e. the laTHEs of nature concernTHEg the atom and its fundamental particles: protons, neutrons and electrons . This theory does not mathematically contemplate THEhat ETHEsteTHE described THE Relativity, and has nevertheless been able to explaTHE all the fundamental THEteractions of matter, THEith the exception of gravitational force.

**KTHEantoTHEa teoria pola** . This branch of mechanics is the most recent (first half of the 20th century) and its approach attempts to apply the prTHEciples of quantum mechanics to classical contTHEuous field systems such as electromagnetic fields.

THEt is also capable of THEcorporatTHEg the prTHEciples of relativity concernTHEg the physics of high energies, used for the study of THEteractions betTHEeen subatomic particles .

Physics THE is a laboratory-based THEtroduction to the basic prTHEciples of classical physics; emphasizTHEg a quantitative and conceptual understandTHEg of mechanics. Primary topics THEclude kTHEematics, mass, force, momentum, energy transfer, drag and friction, and angular momentum. Laboratory demonstrations and experimentation provide hands-on support to conceptual learnTHEg throughout the course.
