**Quantum Physics Notes**

by J D Cresser

**Publisher**: Macquarie University 2009

**Description**:

With the development of the 'quantum information' interpretation of quantum mechanics, more and more the tendency is to move away from wave mechanics to the more abstract linear algebra version, chiefly expressed in the notation due to Dirac. It is this more general view of quantum mechanics that is presented in these notes.
