Understanding quantum mechanics matters because it is the engine that powers the universe. This engine is fuelled by a few simple principles, but the consequences of those principles are both profound and strange. In this richly illustrated book, the key concepts of quantum mechanics are first explained informally with the aid of intuitive diagrams, followed by mathematical analyses, which adhere closely to the physical interpretation of equations.

The material is designed to be accessible to readers with a basic grasp of high school mathematics, and to act as a stepping stone to conventional textbooks. Supported by a comprehensive Glossary, Further Readings, and tutorial appendices, this is an ideal introduction to the mathematics of quantum mechanics.
