**A Short Introduction to the Quantum Formalism**

by Francois David

**Publisher**: arXiv 2012**Number of pages**: 108

**Description**:

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.
