Quantum Physics Notes
by J D Cresser
Publisher: Macquarie University 2009
With the development of the 'quantum information' interpretation of quantum mechanics, more and more the tendency is to move away from wave mechanics to the more abstract linear algebra version, chiefly expressed in the notation due to Dirac. It is this more general view of quantum mechanics that is presented in these notes.

These lectures describe the basic theoretical structures underlying the quantum Hall effect. The focus is on the interplay between microscopic wavefunctions, long-distance effective Chern-Simons theories, and the modes which live on the boundary.

This text introduces quantum mechanics from a more abstract point of view than a first quantum mechanics course. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the structure of quantum mechanics and of some of its key points.

This document is aimed at advanced students of physics who are familiar with the concepts and notations of quantum mechanics. It tries to bridge the gap between simple analytic calculations and complicated large-scale computations.

By using the general concepts of special relativity and the requirements of quantum mechanics, Dirac equation is derived and studied. Only elementary knowledge of spin and rotations in quantum mechanics and standard linear algebra are required.
