What does an analytic number theorist do when he is caught in the tractor-beam of non-commutative geometry with its end-of-the-rainbow promises of magical new number theory methods, and methods with roots in quantum field theory at that? What does he do when he hears rumors of future wild and reckless new attacks on the fortresses of the primes where the zeta function of Riemann stands guard, still seemingly invincible after all these years? Well, the keenly excited but dizzy and disoriented analytic number theorist starts frantically to look for a royal road to quantum mechanics and thereafter to quantum field theory, things he has shunned ever since his youthful all-consuming discovery of for instance modular forms and theta functions. No more, however: those days are goneā€¦].

Quantum Mechanics for Mathematicians

Toggle navigation. Quantum Mechanics for Mathematicians Leon A. Takhtajan This book provides a comprehensive treatment of quantum mechanics from a mathematics perspective and is accessible to mathematicians starting with second-year graduate students. In addition to traditional topics, like classical mechanics, mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics, quantization, and the Schrodinger equation, this book gives a mathematical treatment of systems of identical particles with spin, and it introduces the reader to functional methods in quantum mechanics. This includes the Feynman path integral approach to quantum mechanics, integration in functional spaces, the relation between Feynman and Wiener integrals, Gaussian integration and regularized determinants of differential operators, fermion systems and integration over anticommuting Grassmann variables, supersymmetry and localization in loop spaces, and supersymmetric derivation of the Atiyah-Singer formula for the index of the Dirac operator.
