Foundations of Quantum Mechanics: An Introduction to the Physical Background and Mathematical Structure
by Gregory Naber
Publisher: gregnaber.com 2016
Number of pages: 575
The goal here is to provide an introduction to the physical and mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics. It is addressed to those who have been trained in modern mathematics. As to the mathematical formalism itself, we will provide careful, detailed and rigorous treatments of just a few of the simplest and most fundamental systems with which quantum mechanics deals in the hope that this will lay the foundation for a deeper study of the physical applications to be found in the literature.

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.

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.

A discussion of several aspects of our present understanding of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is put on the special correlations that this theory makes possible: they are forbidden by very general arguments based on realism and local causality.

These notes aim to provide a non-expert introduction to the field of circuit QED, to give a basic appreciation of the promise and challenges of the field, along with a number of key concepts that will be useful for the reader who is new to the field.
