## Literature

The main literature for the course consists of:

(1) The document entitled "Hilbert spaces" found below

(2) Gunnar Ohlen: Quantum world phenomenon: theory and concepts, (University) Chapter 5-9

## Extra reading

Gunnar Sparr and Annika Sparr: Continuous systems (Open University), Chapters H and S

An English book covering the same mathematics area and which may be of interest is

Philippe Dennery and Andre Krzywicki: Mathematics for physicists, found for example here.

Peter S. Riseborough: Mathematical methods 1, kap. 1-9. (freely availiable from the web)

## Course Material
