The text maintains the separation of the minimal set of postulates from the mathematical techniques. At the same time close contact with experiment will be maintained to avoid alienating the physics student. Mathematical rigor is also be maintained.
Introduction to the subject of quantum mechanics, following the historical development of the theory. Physics and mathematics required. From the contents: atoms, the Feynman route to Schroedinger, the Schroedinger equation, entanglement.

This book is devoted to the second great scientific revolution of the last century, the development of Quantum Mechanics as the necessary replacement of Newtonian dynamics in dealing with the motion of the ultimate constituents of matter.
