Operator Algebras and Quantum Statistical Mechanics
by Ola Bratteli, Derek W. Robinson
Publisher: Springer 2003
Number of pages: 505
These two volumes present the theory of operator algebras with applications to quantum statistical mechanics. The authors' approach to the operator theory is to a large extent governed by the dictates of the physical applications. The book is self-contained and most proofs are presented in detail, which makes it a useful text for students with a knowledge of basic functional analysis.

Lecture notes for a 3rd year undergraduate course in functional analysis. By the end of the course, you should have a good understanding of normed vector spaces, Hilbert and Banach spaces, fixed point theorems and examples of function spaces.

A graduate-level introduction to C*-algebras, Hilbert C*-modules, vector bundles, and induced representations of groups and C*-algebras, with applications to quantization theory, phase space localization, and configuration space localization.

These lecture notes are an expanded version of a set written for a course given to final-year undergraduates at the University of Oxford. A thorough understanding of Banach and Hilbert spaces is a prerequisite for this material.
