Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics by John Von Neumann

Book Description

Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics was a revolutionary book that caused a sea change in theoretical physics. Here, John von Neumann, one of the leading mathematicians of the twentieth century, shows that great insights in quantum physics can be obtained by exploring the mathematical structure of quantum mechanics. He begins by presenting the theory of Hermitean operators and Hilbert spaces. These provide the framework for transformation theory, which von Neumann regards as the definitive form of quantum mechanics. Using this theory, he attacks with mathematical rigor some of the general problems of quantum theory, such as quantum statistical mechanics as well as measurement processes. Regarded as a tour de force at the time of publication, this book is still indispensable for those interested in the fundamental issues of quantum mechanics.

Books By Author John Von Neumann

Computer and the Brain by John Von Neumann Computer and the Brain, Paperback (July 2012)

Explores the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. This title shows that the brain operates both digitally and analogically, but also has its own unique statistical language.

Theory of Games and Economic Behavior by John Von Neumann Theory of Games and Economic Behavior, Paperback (March 2007)

Published in 1944, "Theory of Games and Economic Behavior" featured a groundbreaking mathematical theory of economic and social organization, based on a theory of games of strategy. This title includes the original text, an introduction by Harold Kuhn, and reviews and articles on the book that appeared at the time of its original publication.

Continuous Geometry by John Von Neumann Continuous Geometry, Paperback (April 1998)

Based on von Neumann's lecture notes, this book begins with the development of the axioms of continuous geometry, dimension theory, and - for the irreducible case - the function D(a). The properties of regular rings are then discussed, and a variety of results are presented for lattices that are continuous geometries.
