Item description for Quantum Mathematical Physics by E.M. Harrell Walter Thirring...
This book is a new edition of Volumes 3 and 4 of Walter Thirring's famous textbook on mathematical physics. The first part is devoted to quantum mechanics and especially to its applications to scattering theory, atoms and molecules. The second part deals with quantum statistical mechanics examining fundamental concepts like entropy, ergodicity and thermodynamic functions. The author builds on an axiomatic basis and uses tools from functional analysis: bounded and unbounded operators on Hilbert space, operator algebras etc. Mathematics is shown to explain the axioms in depth and to provide the right tool for testing numerical data in experiments.

deep exploration of a Hilbert space Jan 29, 2006
Thirring presents a logical mathematical foundation for quantum physics. This book is meant for theorists who desire a rigorous presentation and who already have a strong math background, especially in functional analysis. Naturally, much of the discussion centres on the properties of a Hilbert space (ie. a complete inner product space). Simpler texts in quantum mechanics might often state that the wavefunctions or operators reside in a Hilbert space, but really don't explore more the consequences. Whereas Thirring takes you much deeper into this realm.
