In this series of physics lectures, Professor J.J. Binney explains how probabilities are obtained from quantum amplitudes, why they give rise to quantum interference, the concept of a complete set of amplitudes and how this defines a "quantum state". A book of the course can be obtained from

Outstanding Course!

Everything about this series is first rate. Professor Binney is excellent, and the video and audio quality are both quite good. I have considered auditing a course in Quantum Mechanics for some time, and this course was just what I was looking for.

Though a good background in college mathematics is required, the relevant mathematics is covered in detail during the lectures. The text for the course is available online, and there are appendices covering some of the math and physics topics in detail.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone with a serious interest in learning Quantum Mechanics.

Thanks very much to everyone involved in making this course available on iTunesU.

Great set of lectures

This is an excellent and serious introduction to QM for 2nd year physics students in the UK - I wonder if anyone at Oxford bothers to attend the real lectures now this is online.

Dr Binney works out nearly every line in real time on the board, bravely ignoring the standard advice that one should never integrate in public. The level is exactly where it needs to be - challenging but always accessible to the motivated mathematical science major. All the usual things at this level are covered, along with a few less usual topics - masers and operator methods for the hydrogen atom, for example.

My only complaint is that these lectures represent only the first half of the Oxford QM syllabus. How about posting the second half too?

Great material

Nice decent video which help me understand the quantum better
