Description

Quantum mechanics has a reputation for being a hard subject, but with a proper introduction, it can be made intuitive.

The course will give a basic understanding of the inner workings of the quantum world. Anyone with basic knowledge of entry-level calculus and linear algebra can understand the mathematics of this course.

Aim of the course is to build intuition about the counter-intuitive world of quantum physics using well known introductory quantum physics problems like a particle in a box, quantum tunnelling, and many more.

If you ever wondered with questions like; what is the origin of the light in the stars? Or are there multiple universes? Or how does the next-generation quantum computing work? Etc. Then quantum mechanics is at the heart of understanding such mysteries.

Quantum mechanics is usually introduced during the UG courses. It gets advanced treatment during the PG courses, and this course can help both kinds of students in gaining the grasp over the basic but counter-intuitive concepts of quantum physics, from the double-slit experiment to the many-world interpretation and everything in-between.

I am a servant of the fundamental trait of the human mind, curiosity. I am a nuclear physicist by profession currently doing my Ph.D. at the department of physics, IIT Roorkee. I always had the zeal to share what I have learned and experienced in the world of physics. Quantum mechanics is my favorite subject of all time; the way quantum physics created a paradigm shift in the human understanding of the universe is unprecedented. As a nuclear physicist, quantum mechanics is my daily language, and I want to tell you precisely what is this beast and how to make it your friend.
