Book Preface

This book is the second volume of the Theoretical Minimum series. The first volume, The Theoretical Minimum: What You Need to Know to Start Doing Physics, covered classical mechanics, which is the core of any physics education. We will refer to it from time to time simply as Volume I. This second book explains quantum mechanics and its relationship to classical mechanics. The books in this series run parallel to Leonard Susskind’s videos, available on the Web through Stanford University (see for a listing). While covering the same general topics as the videos, the books contain additional details, and topics that don’t appear in the videos.
