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.

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 Leon van Dommelen
This book was written for engineering graduate students who find themselves caught up in nano technology. The first part of the book provides a solid introduction to classical quantum mechanics, the second part discusses more advanced topics.

The uncertainty principle is explained with text, pictures and voice clips. Heisenberg's leading biographer tells the full story of this eventful life, including the physicist's controversial role in Nazi Germany's nuclear program.
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.
