The Principles of Quantum Mechanics – Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac – 4th Edition


The first edition of this work appeared in 1930, and its originality won it immediate recognition as a classic of modern physical theory. The fourth edition has been bought out to meet a continued demand. Some improvements have been made, the main one being the rewriting of the chapter on electrodymanics, to bring in electron-pair creation. This makes it suitable as an introduction to recent works on field theories.
