These are the lecture notes for a one semester course at Leibniz University Hannover. The main aim of the course is to give an introduction to the mathematical methods used in describing discrete quantum systems consisting of infinitely many sites. Such systems can be used, for example, to model some materials in condensed matter physics or lattice gases.

The subject of these lecture notes is spectral theory of self-adjoint operators and some of its applications to mathematical physics. The main theme is the interplay between spectral theory of self-adjoint operators and classical harmonic analysis.

The book introduces some methods of global analysis which are useful in various problems of mathematical physics. The author wants to make use of ideas from geometry to shed light on problems in analysis which arise in mathematical physics.
