This book provides an introduction to quantum theory primarily for students of mathematics. Although the approach is mainly traditional the discussion exploits ideas of linear algebra, and points out some of the mathematical subtleties of the theory. Amongst the less traditional topics are Bell's inequalities, coherent and squeezed states, and introductions to group representation theory.

This book provides an introduction to quantum theory primarily for mathematics students, and is based on the sort of material usually covered in the first two years of undergraduate algebra. It includes more mathematical detail than is common in introductory books at this level and covers some more advanced topics.
