Quantum Theory is one of the pillars of modern science developed over the last hundred years. In this review paper the authors introduce, step by step, the quantum theory understood as a mathematical model describing quantum experiments. The goal is to give a mathematically clear and self-containing explanation of the main concepts of the modern language of quantum theory.

This paper is an introduction to work motivated by the question 'can multipartite entanglement be detected by homological algebra?' We introduce cochain complexes associated to multipartite density states whose cohomology detects factorizability.

A basic introduction to the primary mathematical concepts of quantum physics, and their physical significance, from the operator and Hilbert space point of view, highlighting more what are essentially the abstract algebraic aspects of quantization.

These lectures cover a one term course taken by a mixed group of students specializing either in mathematics or physics. We illustrate an interplay of ideas from various fields of mathematics, such as operator theory, differential equations, etc.

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.
