A Primer on Quantum Mechanics and Its Interpretations
by Casey Blood
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 55
All the concepts and principles necessary to understand quantum mechanics on an initial level are given in a form suitable for the non-expert. The concepts explained include visualizing the wave function, wave-particle duality, the implications of Schrodinger's cat, probability, the uncertainty principle, collapse of the wave function, and others.

Classical and wave mechanics, Schroedinger equation, quantum behavior in one-dimensional potentials, harmonic oscillator, orbital angular momentum, electromagnetic field, spin, radiation and matter, emission and absorption, and more.
by Max Planck - The Clarendon press
This is Max Planck's Nobel prize address delivered before the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences at Stockholm, 2 June, 1920. He sketches the history of the origin of the Quantum Theory, the development of this theory and its influence on the Physics.
Introduction to the subject of quantum mechanics, following the historical development of the theory. Physics and mathematics required. From the contents: atoms, the Feynman route to Schroedinger, the Schroedinger equation, entanglement.
by James G. Branson - UCSD
This set of notes covers a 3 quarter advanced undergraduate quantum physics course at UCSD, from the beginning of Quantum Mechanics to the quantization of the electromagnetic field and the Dirac equation. Lecture videos are included.
