Quantum Mechanics for the Mathematically Innocent : Tim Parrott

"Until the 20th century, Physics was the home of hard, unassailable facts. Einstein famously recorded his disgust as more and more researchers argued that Classical Physics had had its day and that probability was now an inescapable part of the physical world. Come and get a flavour of the weird logic that governs the behaviour of atoms, photons and sub-atomic particles. Words cannot rival the rigour of the formulae, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how far they’ll take us."
