Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics

Small book cover: Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics

Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics

Publisher: University of Toronto
Number of pages: 185

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.
