This guide is a subset to the Introduction to Quantum Mechanics guide, which is intended to cover what a one-semester or one year junior or senior college level course would...this guide would also suit any "self-learners" as this level of course is typical for a college student's first exposure to Quantum Mechanics as well -- This subguide will introduce the concept of the wavefunction (which in itself is a quantum mechanical postulate), present the Schroedinger equation and its associated statistical interpretation (a review of necessary probability concepts will be provided), the need for NORMALIZATION/square-integrability of valid wavefunctions and how to do this, the momentum operator and the pure momentum state wave function , and finally introduce the pillars of quantum mechanics: WAVE-PARTICLE DUALITY (de Broglie) and the HEISENBERG UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE. Isn't physics fun?
