I have been trying to read about Heisenberg's matrix mechanics on my own, and I am getting hopelessly lost. I understand it has something to do with anharmonic oscillators. I am no physicist, so please take it easy with the explanations.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, I read somewhere that these, along with Max Born's formulation of them into Matrix form, which were the inspiration for Dirac's notation later. Is there a relationship between the two?
