Mathematical Methods in Quantum Mechanics

  title={Mathematical Methods in Quantum Mechanics},
  author={Gerald Teschl},
Quantum mechanics and the theory of operators on Hilbert space have been deeply linked since their beginnings in the early twentieth century. States of a quantum system correspond to certain elements of the configuration space and observables correspond to certain operators on the space. This book is a brief, but self-contained, introduction to the mathematical methods of quantum mechanics, with a view towards applications to Schrodinger operators. Part 1 of the book is a concise introduction… 

Time-Evolution as an Operator in Hilbert Spaces with Applications in Quantum Mechanics

ABSTRACT: The main aim of this article is to present the time-evolution as the unitary and self-adjoint operators on Hilbert spaces and to describe its application in the development of quantum

Spectral and Eigenfunction correlations of finite-volume Schrödinger operators

The goal of this thesis is a mathematical understanding of a phenomenon called Anderson's Orthogonality in the physics literature. Given two non-interacting fermionic systems which differ by an

The overall goal of this chapter is to extend the elementary decomposition of a Hermitian operator ( 1.4) on a finite-dimensional Hilbert space seen in Chap. 1 to a formula valid in the

Time and the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics

Quantum mechanics has provided philosophers of science with many counterintuitive insights and interpretive puzzles, but little has been written about the role that time plays in the theory. One

Self-adjoint operators and solving the Schrödinger equation Basics collected

In this tutorial we collect facts from the theory of self-adjoint operators, mostly with a view of what is relevant for applications in mathematical quantum mechanics, in particular for solving the

Methods of modern mathematical physics: Uncertainty and exclusion principles in quantum mechanics

These are lecture notes for a master-level course given at KTH, Stockholm, in the spring of 2017, with the primary aim of proving the stability of matter from first principles using modern

Quantum Zeno Effect in Open Quantum Systems

We prove the quantum Zeno effect in open quantum systems whose evolution, governed by quantum dynamical semigroups, is repeatedly and frequently interrupted by the action of a quantum operation. For



Advanced visual quantum mechanics

Advanced Visual Quantum Mechanics is a systematic effort to investigate and to teach quantum mechanics with the aid of computer-generated animations. Although it is self-contained, this book is part

Quantum mechanics of atoms and molecules

Inverse Problems in Quantum Scattering Theory

The physical importance of inverse problems in quantum scattering theory is clear since all the information we can obtain on nuclear, particle, and subparticle physics is gathered from scattering

Quantum Mechanics for Hamiltonians Defined as Quadratic Forms

This monograph combines a thorough introduction to the mathematical foundations of n-body Schrodinger mechanics with numerous new results to greatly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press.

Scattering theory of waves and particles

Much progress has been made in scattering theory since the publication of the first edition of this book fifteen years ago, and it is time to update it. Needless to say, it was impossible to

Mathematical scattering theory

The main subject of this book is applications of methods of scattering theory to differential operators, primarily the Schrodinger operator. There are two different trends in scattering theory for
