About the Author:

R. Shankar is John Randolph Huffman Professor of Physics, Yale University. He is the 2009 winner of the American Physical Society’s Lilienfeld Prize and the author of three previous textbooks.

Review:

"I think Shankar does a magnificent job on quantum physics and this might be the best introduction there is. . . . Shankar’s two volumes on physics in my view are already classics."—James M. Cargal, The UMAP Journal
"This introductory text makes easy reading, due to Shankar’s great sense of humor and his lucid explanation of the essential ideas of fundamental physics."—David Gross, Nobel Laureate in Physics, 2004, onprevious volume
"Masterfully developing the student’s facility with symmetry, dimensional analysis, physical intuition, and solid mathematical reasoning, Shankar once again explains the essentials of introductory physics with great clarity and elegance."—Daniel Arovas, University of California, San Diego
"Shankar makes the study of modern physics easy going for students and general readers. A wonderful combination of clarity, humor, and depth."—David Gross, Nobel Laureate in Physics, 2004
"A worthy companion to the excellent first volume. Shankar’s deep understanding and unique insights shine through. His explanations are clear and thorough and presented with an inimitably light touch."—Alan Chodos, American Physical Society (retired)
"This delightful volume, a textbook and lecture notes all in one, is a worthy sequel to Fundamentals of Physics I. In his interactive and humorous way, Shankar builds a serious foundation for physics knowledge."—Igor Klebanov, Princeton University
