    is something wrong with the expression he wrote down at 5:17?

    dxi/dt =[xi, H]/(i h-bar) is fine. but when i computed the commutator and
    substituted into this equation, the factor i h-bar cancels, i.e. dxi/dt =
    (pi-eAi)/m. in fact that makes more sense because dxi/dt the i-component of
    velocity should be a real number.

    Anyone interested in a quality book. Here’s a gem: Principles of Quantum
    mechanics – R.Shankar.

    the QM book by herbert kroemer (chapter 8) cleared up much of my own
    confusion about mechanical (kroemer calls it kinetic momentum) and the
    canonical momentum (which is the mechanical momentum + the -eA term). it
    also has a section on gauge invariance in the same chapter. after reading
    that and re-listening to lecture 16 & 17 much of my confusion has
    disappeared. i won’t say i still understand it thoroughly, but this is a
    good start. the role of magnetic fields in QM is devilishly hard!

    i have slowly worked myself up to this lecture and hope to continue. making
    extensive notes. the last lecture was tough going only because of gaps in
    my own knowledge of EM. i had to accept some of the starting premise
    regarding the relationship between canonical and mechanical momenta and the
    gauge invariance stuff (probably follows from maxwell’s equations). then i
    was able to follow along. good stuff. going to keep going.

    i got a bit lost a couple lessons ago but this is way over my head

    @lomje70 Its a good thing, calm your mind :p Something very necessary
    before the oncoming knowledge assault :p

    Check that out: he doesn’t even use notes. Wow! Thanks, Prof. Balakrishnan.

    was having the exact same thought 🙂

    Thanks for this series, it’s fantastic. However, I now have the “Om” intro
    song stuck in my head.
