A Primer on Quantum Mechanics and Its Interpretations
by Casey Blood
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 55
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.
