A Pedestrian Introduction to the Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Physics

A Pedestrian Introduction to the Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Physics

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 79

These notes offer 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 in contrast to more standard treatments of such issues, while also bridging towards the path integral formulation of quantization.
