My QM professor was horrible, and so I learnt by myself with a very old small book I found in the library, that helped me a lot P.

OmnipresentAbsence Then, if you are at the faculty now, it much depends on your future QM professor and what books s he will follow.

Quantuk the final lecture, “Quantization on Flat Surfaces,” he concludes that “we can set up the basic equations for a quantum theory of the Born-Infeld electrodynamics agreeing with special relativity, but [not] with general relativity.

This is a long time ago and I’m wondering if parts of the book are outdated, and if so, which ones and why? In chapter 1 and 2, his discussion on classical Hamiltonian and constraint equations make it clear what constraint equations mean in physics and w.m.dirac it translates to e.

Elementary Particles and the Laws of Physics.

IMO It would be a cruel trick to offer a textbook of that period to a modern student. In “Quantization on Curved Surfaces,” Dirac examines the possibility of building a relativistic quantum theory on curved surfaces.

But he assumes that you know a great deal of physics so this is a good brain workout for curious readers; anyone can survive few short lectures. Both books cover near identical material, but have different examples and different approaches.
