Quantum Mechanics

Quantum Mechanics by Professor James Binney (University of Oxford). This is a collection of video lectures on Quantum Mechanics taught by Professor James Binney. In this series of physics lectures, Professor James Binney explains how probabilities are obtained from quantum amplitudes, why they give rise to quantum interference, the concept of a complete set of amplitudes and how this defines a "quantum state".
