An Introduction to Hilbert Space
Hilbert space is the mathematical foundation used for quantum mechanics. This formalism uses the basic ideas of vector analysis, with functions taking the role of vectors. In this chapter we will highlight a few of the key ideas used in quantum mechanics.
CHAPTER OBJECTIVES
In this chapter you will
•  Understand the underlying mathematical structure of quantum mechanics
•  Learn to connect vectors to representations of particle states in quantum mechanics
Basic Definitions
