My notes for “Graduate Quantum Mechanics” (PHY1520H) taught by Prof. Arun Paramekanti, fall 2015. (435 pages), are now available on paper (black and white) through kindle-direct-publishing for $12 USD.

This book is dedicated to my siblings.

Kindle-direct-publishing is a print on demand service, and allows me to make the notes available for pretty close to cost (in this case, about $6 printing cost, $5 to amazon, and about $1 to me as a token royalty).  The notes are still available for free in PDF form, and the latex sources are also available should somebody feel motivated enough to submit a merge request with corrections or enhancements.

This grad quantum course was especially fun.  When I took this class, I had enjoyed the chance to revisit the subject.  Of my three round match against QM, I came out much less bloody this time than the first two rounds.

These notes are no longer redacted and include whatever portions of the problem I completed, errors and all.  In the event that any of the problem sets are recycled for future iterations of the course, students who are taking the course (all mature grad students pursuing science for the love of it, not for grades) are expected to act responsibly, and produce their own solutions, within the constraints provided by the professor.
