PortraitRamamurti Shankar is the John Randolph Huffman Professor of Physics at Yale University, USA.
Pressestimmen`Shankar obviously enjoys his mathematics, and his attitude toward mathematics is simultaneously refreshing and contagious....Dirac notation is intriguingly introduced in the discussion of vector spaces. Finally, the book is richly endowed with well-chosen problems.'
American Journal of Physics
`Consistent with the needs of science students...a sound mathematical reference for anyone studying or practicing in the physical sciences.'
