I'm looking for an originally German introduction to quantum mechanics. Is there such a canonical book used in German QM undergraduate courses?

Isn't this a bit too localized? – Marek May 8 '11 at 14:54
@Marek: I tend to agree, but it can be helpful to some. Actually, I think a general question about good books on QM in any language - probably community wiki and kept up to date - would be best. – jdm Jun 14 '12 at 10:37
Since Phys.SE is an English-speaking physics site, it seems off-topic to ask for literature in a specific language, so I'm closing the post. [Note that it is still OK (if someone asks about a topic X) to recommend non-English literature. Non-English literature might sometimes be the best resource.] – Qmechanic Sep 9 '14 at 10:54

I think a very good orignally german QM book is:

Straumann: "Quantenmechanik: Ein Grundkurs über nichtrelativistische Quantentheorie"

there is also a second volume:

Straumann: "Relativistische Quantenfeldtheorie"

Another good book is from G. Grawert: Quantenmechanik

You may also have a look at Thirrings books about QM (it is mathematically more advanced).

I think Straumanns book is not "canonical".

Often used by students are the books by Nolting and Greiner.

From the experimental point of view you may have a look at Demtröders book.
