Publisher: Macquarie University

Description:
With the development of the 'quantum information' interpretation of quantum mechanics, more and more the tendency is to move away from wave mechanics to the more abstract linear algebra version, chiefly expressed in the notation due to Dirac. It is this more general view of quantum mechanics that is presented in these notes.

This book deals with the kinematics of diffusion processes. The dynamical equations are derived from a variational principle, and interference, the asymptotics of free motion, bound states, statistics, and spin are described in classical terms.

An interesting topic of quantum mechanics is the study of open quantum systems. By it, we mean a simple quantum system, described by one or a few degrees of freedom, interacting with a background characterized by a continuum of excitations.
