Quantum physics is one of the most significant scientific disciplines arguably infamous for being the most complicated subject in the world. The reason for this could be the fact that it requires math, and lots of math. Without mathematical reasoning and thinking, you cannot learn it. Another reason why people don’t want to learn it is because it is absurd. Certain phenomena are difficult to understand and comprehend. Though difficulty is a subjective matter, people find it hard to comprehend certain processes in general. But I think that is reason why one should pursue it. The actual fun lies in the challenges. You get a certain kick in being able to understand the processes, in being able to solve problems and create your own problems, to be able to understand and apply mathematics in dissecting and scrutinizing the intricate details of the quantum world.

I believe, it isn’t as difficult a subject to understand if you have proper resources with you. In order for you to start your journey with the quantum realm, it is important that you have the basic understanding of classical physics as several processes in quantum mechanics have analogous meanings in Newtonian mechanics too. You must also have a significantly good understanding of mathematics which include vector analysis, calculus, differential geometry, liner algebra etc. There are many good resources out there that you can get your hands as a beginner to start and learn about…
