**Mathematical Concepts of Quantum Mechanics**

by S. Gustafson, I.M. Sigal

**Publisher**: University of Toronto 2001**Number of pages**: 185

**Description**:

These lectures cover a one term course taken by a mixed group of students specializing either in mathematics or physics. We decided to select material which illustrates an interplay of ideas from various fields of mathematics, such as operator theory, probability, differential equations, and differential geometry.

**Symplectic Geometry of Quantum Noise**

by

**Leonid Polterovich**-

**arXiv**

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.
