A Short Introduction to the Quantum Formalism
by Francois David
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 108
These notes present an introductory, but hopefully coherent, view of the main formalizations of quantum mechanics, of their interrelations and of their common physical underpinnings: causality, reversibility and locality/separability.

This text is aimed at graduate students in physics in mathematics and designed to give a comprehensive introduction to Weyl quantization and semiclassics via Egorov's theorem. An application of Weyl calculus to Born-Oppenheimer systems is discussed.

These are the lecture notes from a graduate course in the geometry of quantum mechanics. The idea was to introduce the mathematics in its own right, but not to introduce anything that is not directly relevant to the subject.

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.
