Abstract: This elementary text introduces undergraduates with no background in mathematics beyond algebra to basic quantum mechanics. Containing more than 100 problems, it provides an easy way to learn part of the quantum language and apply it to problems. Emphasizing the matrices representing physical quantities, it describes states simply by mean values of physical quantities or by probabilities for possible values. This approach requires using the algebra of matrices and complex numbers together with probabilities and mean values, a technique introduced at the outset and employed repeatedly. 1986 ed. 38 figures.
