**A Primer on Quantum Mechanics and Its Interpretations**

by Casey Blood

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 55

**Description**:

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.
