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.

With the development of the quantum information interpretation of quantum mechanics, the tendency is to move away from wave mechanics to the more abstract linear algebra version. It is this view of quantum mechanics that is presented in these notes.
