About the Course

Course Overview: The 20th century was known as the century of physics. In the past 120 years, concepts such as space, time, energy, entropy and particles were understood to much deeper levels. New paradigms of thinking such as relativity and quantum mechanics emerged. This course is the second course in the Understanding Modern Physics series, which covers an introduction to quantum mechanics, atomic physics and quantum information. We will find (i) How the quantum world is different from our everyday experience, and why we need quantum mechanics; (ii) How to describe atoms in fundamental physics, why atoms do not collapse, and what are the atomic states; (iii) The nature of quantum information, and why quantum information is much richer than classical information....

Amazing resource. I recommend starting with this course + Susskind's theoretical minimum. You can go anywhere from here:D

It's very interesting course. I get understading about quantum mecanics in short time. But at week1 will be very useful give more information about complex number and at week4 some examples of propability calculations and vector description of two spin states.

A good introduction to quantum mechanics that does not require excessive mathematical skills.

The course starts getting complex pretty fast. Although the professor says it's an introduction to an introduction, it throws mathematical details at you. Week 1 is straightforward and encouraging; nonetheless, if you plan to get an overview of Quantum Mechanics and atoms, it is a good overview to navigate your learning.

Lecturer is very difficult to understand, lectures do not seem to flow well
