Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics
by

Publisher: University of Toronto
Number of pages: 185

Description:
These lectures cover a one term course taken by a mixed group of students specializing either in mathematics or physics. We decided to select material which illustrates an interplay of ideas from various fields of mathematics, such as operator theory, probability, differential equations, and differential geometry.

These notes present an introductory, but hopefully coherent, view of the main formalizations of quantum mechanics, of their interrelations and of their common physical underpinnings: causality, reversibility and locality/separability.

Book cover: Symplectic Geometry of Quantum NoiseSymplectic Geometry of Quantum Noise
by - arXiv
We discuss a quantum counterpart of certain constraints on Poisson brackets coming from 'hard' symplectic geometry. They can be interpreted in terms of the quantum noise of observables and their joint measurements in operational quantum mechanics.
