Quantum physics and quantum mechanics

  1. Jul 13, 2012 #1
    Hey everyone,

    I know that quantum mechanics is a sub topic of quantum physics and is the most general also, but I'm having trouble finding an article that is recent, detailed, and accurate. So if you guys could explain the basics and go into detail when you feel necessary. Thanks.
