Microscopic World -2- (Introduction to Quantum Mechanics)
Part 1: Schroedinger's Wave Mechanics
As explained in the previous Seminar, Microscopic World -1- (Mysteries in the Atomic World) , light is a mysterious thing possessing both particle nature and wave nature. This is very difficult to understand within the classical theory consisting of Newtonian mechanics and Maxwellian electromagnetism. The theory to solve this difficulty is nothing else than The Quantum Mechanics. Here in Part 1 of the present Seminar, let us study just the basic thinking (philosophy) of the quantum mechanics.
