In this series of physics lectures, Professor J.J. Binney explains how probabilities are obtained from quantum amplitudes, why they give rise to quantum interference, the concept of a complete set of amplitudes and how this defines a "quantum state". A book of the course can be obtained from http://bit.ly/binneybook

$J-money$$ ,

Lucid, honest explanation of Quantum Mechancis

Professor Binney does a good job giving a rigorous foundation of Quantum Mechanics in this lecture series. Further, he takes the time to contextualize the topics by grounding them with examples from current research. Very good!
