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.

Quantum mechanics is a collection of postulates based on a huge number of experimental observations and the ideas. In this book you will learn now the quantum world works, why it must work in this particular way, and how we might understand it.
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.
