Quantum transients are temporary features of matter waves before they reach a stationary regime. Transients may arise after the preparation of an unstable initial state or due to a sudden interaction or a change in the boundary conditions. Examples are diffraction in time, buildup processes, decay, trapping, forerunners or pulse formation, as well as other phenomena recently discovered, such as the simultaneous arrival of a wave peak at arbitrarily distant observers.

This is a self-contained set of lecture notes covering various aspects of the theory of open quantum system, at a level of a graduate course. The main emphasis is on completely positive maps and master equations, both Markovian and non-Markovian.

These lectures describe the basic theoretical structures underlying the quantum Hall effect. The focus is on the interplay between microscopic wavefunctions, long-distance effective Chern-Simons theories, and the modes which live on the boundary.

The book gives a consequent and mathematical formulation to the interpretation of quantum mechanics that is often met among practical physicists. The book ought to be accessible to students that finished the standard course of quantum mechanics.

This text introduces quantum mechanics from a more abstract point of view than a first quantum mechanics course. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the structure of quantum mechanics and of some of its key points.
