This is the best introduction to quantum mechanics: https://www.google.es/search?q=susskind+quantum+mechanics&aq=f&oq=susskind+quantum+mechanics&aqs=chrome.0.57j0l3.11316&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

disclaimer: I have not seen it. but I saw some other lectures of this series "the theoretical minimum" from Leonard Susskind and they are awersome. The laws of physics are experimental, and experimental is a form of ad hoc. The Schrodinger equation was made ad hoc to match the experimental results. In the same way, relativity: so Michelson did not found any anisotropy in the speed of light? let's make c constant, an see what happens in the equations". So they lack interpretation. the interpretation is post hoc. But if we have not a innate intuition of concepts that can help, there is no possible understanding of them. The newtonian laws can be "understood" because our innate notion of phisics is aristotelian, and includes the fundamental elements: euclidean 3D geometry, bodies, forces etc. But quantum mechanics and relativity can only be -partially- understood intuitively by making partial analogies with innate objects of our intuition. 2013/1/16 Roger Clough <rclo...@verizon.net> > Hi socra...@bezeqint.net > > Feymann has passed on.
