- n. Quantum theory, especially the quantum theory of the structure and behavior of atoms and molecules.
- n. physics The branch of physics which studies matter and energy at the level of atoms and other elementary particles, and substitutes probabilistic mechanisms for classical Newtonian ones.
- n. uncountable, by extension Something overly complicated or detailed.
- n. the branch of quantum physics that accounts for matter at the atomic level; an extension of statistical mechanics based on quantum theory (especially the Pauli exclusion principle)
“The test confirmed an underlying theory of quantum mechanics — namely, that a measurement made on one photon has an instantaneous effect on the nature of another photon.”
“When I was a graduate student in physical chemistry at Yale, I had the remarkable experience of taking a course in relativistic quantum mechanics from Nobel laureate Willis Lamb.”
“My intellectual life was immersed in quantum mechanics and second-order differential equations, and my heroes were the giants of physics—Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Paul Dirac.”

Has eyes that roll back in his head
They flutter and dart, he slows down his heart
And pictures a world...
