DESCRIPTION:The event will take place in an hybrid form: in person in Room
C and online (videoconference).Quantum Mechanics: A Mathematical Introduc
tion by Andrew J. Larkoski\, Cambridge University Press\, 2022.AbstractThi
s original and innovative textbook takes the unique perspective of introdu
cing and solving problems in quantum mechanics using linear algebra method
s\, to equip readers with a deeper and more practical understanding of thi
s fundamental pillar of contemporary physics. Extensive motivation for the
properties of quantum mechanics\, Hilbert space\, and the SchrÃ¶dinger eq
uation is provided through analysis of the derivative\, while standard top
ics like the harmonic oscillator\, rotations\, and the hydrogen atom are c
overed from within the context of operator methods. Advanced topics formin
g the basis of modern physics research are also included\, such as the den
sity matrix\, entropy\, and measures of entanglement. Written for an under
graduate audience\, this book offers a unique and mathematically self-cont
ained treatment of this hugely important topic. Students are guided gently
through the text by the author's engaging writing style\, with an extensi
ve glossary provided for reference and numerous homework problems to expan
d and develop key concepts. Online resources for instructors include a ful
ly worked solutions manual and lecture slides.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/e
