An Introduction to Quantum Theory (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides an introduction to quantum theory, primarily for mathematics students. It assumes a knowledge of basic algebra and elementary group theory, with little or no familiarity with more advanced topics. Although it takes a traditional approach, the book exploits ideas of linear algebra and points out some of the mathematical subtleties of the theory. It also covers such topics as Bell's inequalities and coherent and squeezed states, and introduces group representation theory, algebraic quantum theory, and quantum statistical mechanics. Later chapters discuss relativistic wave equations and elementary particle symmetries from a group-theoretical standpoint.

Book News Annotation:

Employment of algebraic techniques and other topics studied in core mathematics courses enables the formalism of quantum mechanics to be developed in a more thorough way than is usually encountered. This approach also permits the inclusion of some less traditional, more advanced topics such as Bell's inequalities, coherent and squeezed states, and introductions to group representation theory, algebraic quantum theory, and quantum statistical mechanics. Later chapters discuss relativistic wave equations and elementary particle symmetrics from a group-theoretical standpoint, rather than the customer Lie algebraic approach.
