Brian C. Hall is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame.
“This book is an introduction to quantum mechanics intended for mathematicians and mathematics students who do not have a particularly strong background in physics. … A well-qualified graduate student can learn a lot from this book. I found it to be clear and well organized, and I personally enjoyed reading it very much.” (David S. Watkins, SIAM Review, Vol. 57 (3), September, 2015)“This textbook is meant for advanced studies on quantum mechanics for a mathematical readership. The exercises at the end of each chapter make the book especially valuable.” (A. Winterhof, Internationale Mathematischen Nachrichten, Issue 228, 2015)“There are a few textbooks on quantum theory for mathematicians who are alien to the physical culture … but this modest textbook will surely find its place. All in all, the book is well written and accessible to any interested mathematicians and mathematical graduates.” (Hirokazu Nishimura, zbMATH, Vol. 1273, 2013)
