**Foundations of Quantum Mechanics: An Introduction to the Physical Background and Mathematical Structure**

by Gregory Naber

**Publisher**: gregnaber.com 2016**Number of pages**: 575

**Description**:

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.
