Description

Quantum mechanics (QM), also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the atomic and subatomic scales, the so-called quantum realm. In advanced topics of QM, some of these behaviors are macroscopic and only emerge at very low or very high energies or temperatures.
