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

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?

Binney does not understand quantum mechanics

James Binney believes that quantum uncertainty is simply a result of the measurement disturbing the quantum particle.

Lousy Instruction Technique

I find it appalling that one of the best universities still conducts teaching with such antiquated methods as the blackboard! Yes, you can learn from this course, but it could be so much more effective with better visual aids. How much are these kids paying for such lousy instructional technique? A picture would illustrate electron scatter and probability much more quickly and elegantly!
