  • Four concise, brilliant lectures on mathematical methods by the Nobel Laureate and quantum pioneer begin with an introduction to visualizing quantum theory through the use of classical mechanics The remaining lectures build on that idea, examining the possibility of building a relativistic quantum theory on curved surfaces or flat surfaces.

    1. This book is "hard" because it is too terse in a real sense. With only 90 pages or so Dirac managed to perform quantization via Hamiltonian formalism. It is to be understood that the readers are experts in the field or researchers well acquainted with some aspects of quantum field theory already. This is further supported by the fact that in final chapter Dirac seems to assume reader has heard of Born-Infeld electrodynamics. I am unfortunately only fourth-year undergraduate with somewhat ill-dev [...]

    2. Classic example of one of those small books that you think will be a breeze to read, but then wind up taking up much more time than you initially thought. True testament to the genius of Paul Dirac.

    3. I just read the first two lectures, which are the more elementary ones. Dirac introduces, in an abstract and mathematical setting, the method of quantization of a classical system by means of the description of its classical Hamiltonian (which is then used in Schrödinger's equation), starting from the action (time) integral of the Lagrangian, in order to get a relativistic version of the quantized model. Poisson brackets are introduced to get simpler expressions. Emphasis is put on the classifi [...]

    4. It has disappointed my expectations since I wanted to read something so philosophical and profound like Schrödinger "What is life" but this book enters straight to some mathematical questions from a Dirac speech, very specialised
