In this course you will learn the theory of quantum physics. We will approach the subject from a holistic standpoint by giving adequate attention to theory, experiment, and philosophy. We will cover several formulations of quantum mechanics including the probabilistic formulation, matrix mechanics, and pilot wave theory. We will also look at the different interpretations of the quantum theory including the Copenhagen Interpretation and the Many Worlds Hypothesis.
