# A Little on Quantum Mechanics

I have a long-time recreational interest in the foundations of quantum mechanics.
### Notes for the Margins of "The Feynman Lectures on Physics"

### Volume III, Chapters 3, 5, 6, and 17

"The Feynman Lectures on Physics"
is a famous book based on lectures Feynman gave to
freshman and sophomores at Cal Tech. Much of the material in
Volume III (Quantum Mechanics) is **much** easier to
understand if one knows linear algebra.

Feynman's Lectures, Chapter 5
