Quantum Mechanics 3: Wavefunctions, Superposition, & Virtual Particles

Length: 46 pages41 minutes


This book is the third stage of our exploration of Quantum Mechanics in the Everyone’s Guide Series. Here, we explore the heart of Quantum Mechanics: wavefunctions, the Schrödinger wave equation, superposition, and the virtual particles that spring forth thanks to the Uncertainty Principle. We will see how these remarkable concepts apply to real particles in real high-energy physics experiments.

Readers will benefit from a prior reading of Quantum Mechanics 1: Particle & Waves and Quantum Mechanics 2: Reality, Uncertainty & Schrödinger's Cat, although we do review the most important points in these books to make this book more self-contained.
