There are many fine textbooks on quantum mechanics. Go to the library and look over our collection, and take out one or a few for your
personal use. I'll put together a list of suggested books soon. For our text, we will use Griffiths's Quantum Mechanics (2th edition), which
does not shirk from doing hard mathematics at any point, but which keeps the focus on the physics at all times. It's a very lively book, and very
reader-friendly. One book in particular, Reed's Quantum Mechanics, will be put on reserve in the Stratton reading room (and where it must stay
so all can access it!!). This book is new, and has as its greatest virtues simplicity and clarity -- but it is too elementary to really get at the challenging
stuff that we want to include in a course such as this.
