A Mathematical Introduction to Dirac's Formalism by S. J. L. Van Eijndhoven

By S. J. L. Van Eijndhoven

This monograph features a sensible analytic advent to Dirac's formalism. the 1st half offers a few new mathematical notions within the atmosphere of triples of Hilbert areas, pointing out the idea that of Dirac foundation. the second one half introduces a conceptually new concept of generalized capabilities, integrating the notions of the 1st half. The final a part of the booklet is dedicated to a mathematical interpretation of the most positive aspects of Dirac's formalism. It consists of a pairing among distributional bras and kets, continuum expansions and continuum matrices.
