Re: [QuantumPhysicsMeetupGroup] Quantum Mechanics Lecture Notes for the Mathematically Minded

Hello Prem,

Don't worry, the majority of the talks will be at the layman's level, and of interest to all. In fact the next talk in the second week of February, on the Uncertainty Principle will be aimed at the non-technical enthusiast.

Saying that, there will be a supplementary set of lecture and workshop-style meetups aimed at the more mathematically minded and those who really want to get to grips with the subject. While there is a classical preamble with this, it will be aimed at the fundamental postulates of quantum mechanics, wave mechanics and such areas as derivations and applications of the uncertainty principle, the quantised harmonic oscillator and the Dirac Equation.

Regards,

Paul

Gentlemen.   I am bamboozled.  I had hoped this group would explain some of the issues around Quantum Physics to a layman and help me understand the importance of what this is in the real world. I am naturally inquisitive ��� one of my faults.  I see that the correspondence here seems to be around subjects and papers that are very scientifically intellectual and totally over my head.

 

I unreservedly accept that there is a place for a very scientific group however I will just embarrass myself within it as I am illiterate.  May I ask, is this group for laymen or of men of deep science ?   If the latter, I fear that I will need to drop out for my sanity.

 

Best Regards,

 

Prem
