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.
