**Quantum Theory, Groups and Representations: An Introduction**

by Peter Woit

**Publisher**: Columbia University 2014**Number of pages**: 396

**Description**:

These notes cover the basics of quantum mechanics, from a point of view emphasizing the role of unitary representations of Lie groups in the foundations of the subject. The approach to this material is simultaneously rather advanced, using crucially some fundamental mathematical structures normally only discussed in graduate mathematics courses, while at the same time trying to do this in as elementary terms as possible.
