Lec 15- Tunnelling and Radioactive Decay

"Lec 15- Tunnelling and Radioactive Decay"In this series of physics lectures, Professor J.J. Binney explains how probabilities are obtained from quantum amplitudes, why they give rise to quantum interference, the concept of a complete set of amplitudes and how this defines a "quantum state".
