This book was written as a text, although many may consider it a
mono graph. As a text it has been used several times in both the
one-year graduate quantum-mechanics course and (in its shortened
version) in a senior quantum mechanics course that I taught at the
University of Texas at Austin. It is self-contained and does not
require any prior knowledge of quantum mechanics. It also
introduces the mathematical language of quantum mechanics, starting
with the definitions, and attempts to teach this language by using
it. Therefore, it can, in principle, be read without prior
knowledge of the theory of linear operators and linear spaces,
though some familiarity with linear algebra would be helpful.
Prerequisites are knowledge of calculus and of vector algebra and
analysis. Also used in a few places are some elementary facts of
Fourier analysis and differential equations. Most physical examples
are taken from the fields of atomic and molecular physics, as it is
these fields that are best known to students at the stage when they
learn quantum mechanics. This book may be considered a monograph
because the presentation here is different from the usual treatment
in many standard textbooks on quantum mechanics. It is not that a
"different kind" of quantum mechanics is pre sented here; this is
conventional quantum mechanics (" Copenhagen inter pretation ")."
