Back from Canada

Adrian arrived here in Wells today after a six hour train ride from Liverpool. He landed in the UK at Manchester on Thursday very early and then spent some time in the area visiting relatives. He's here till his Canadian Visa comes through, then off to Whistler.

Currently working on a review of a gem of a book (mentioned in a previous post), Essential Quantum Mechnics by Gary Bowman. This is standard non-relativistic QM as you would meet it in an advanced undergraduate course, but considered from a sophisticated conceptual standpoint. It is given that the reader has 'got' the formal results; Gary is interested in what exactly the maths means in a broader conceptual context.

I think I will write a vanilla, down-the-line review for Amazon and a more elaborated, SF version for
