Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications

The present text will maintain the separation of the minimal set of postulates from the mathematical techniques. At the same time close contact with experiment will be maintained to avoid alienating the physics student. Mathematical rigor will also be maintained barring some exceptions where it would take the reader too far afield into mathematics.

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.

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.

All the concepts necessary to understand quantum mechanics on an initial level are given in a form suitable for the non-expert. The topics include visualizing the wave function, wave-particle duality, the implications of Schrodinger's cat, etc.
