States, Amplitudes, and Probabilities

Lecture no. 9 from the course: Quantum Mechanics

States, Amplitudes, and Probabilities

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

The interferometer from the previous lecture serves as a test case for introducing the formal math of quantum theory. By learning a few symbols and rules, you can describe the states of quantum particles, show how these states change over time, and predict the results of measurements.

introduced so simply and cohesively. Loved the book recommendation and how all the previous lectures lead up to this mathematical interpretation of what you have already shown us.

I don't know which is scarier: the fact that this is so abstract, or the fact that I'm actually starting to understand it.
