Intended audience

These lecture notes outline a single semester course on non-relativistic quantum mechanics which is primarily intended for upper-division undergraduate physics majors. The course assumes some previous knowledge of physics and mathematics. In particular, prospective students should be reasonably familiar with Newtonian dynamics, elementary classical electromagnetism and special relativity, the physics and mathematics of waves (including the representation of waves via complex functions), basic probability theory, ordinary and partial differential equations, linear algebra, vector algebra, and Fourier series and transforms.
