Hello. I'm a high school student who is very interested in quantum mechanics. Though, I have certainly not the math background to start studying, and understanding QM fully. I will not be able to take any course relating to this in University, as I'm going in the linguistics and philosophy fields. Therefore, it would be very appreciated if anyone could tell me / advise me on what I shall study and understand (math-wise) before getting into the real subject, and then when I'm past this step, to list me authors and books to read. Books for laymen would also help. Thank you very much.
