Quantum Theory, Groups and Representations: An Introduction
by Peter Woit
Publisher: Columbia University 2014
Number of pages: 396
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.

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.

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 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 book is an attempt to help students transform all of the concepts of quantum mechanics into concrete computer representations, which can be analyzed and understood at a deeper level than what is possible with more abstract representations.
