This text focuses on introducing students to the postulates and general principles of quantum mechanics. Application to harmonic oscillator, rigid rotor, one-electron and many-electron atoms, and homo- and hetero-nuclear diatomic molecules are discussed including variational method and time-independent perturbation theory approximations.
