 The present text was written for my course Schrödinger Operators held at the University of Vienna in winter 1999, summer 2002, summer 2005,and winter 2007. It gives a brief but rather self-contained introductionto the mathematical methods of quantum mechanics with a view towardsapplications to Schr ̈odinger operators. The applications presented are highlyselective and many important and interesting items are not touched upon.

## What’s this Math Quantum Thingy All About???

Lemma 0.5.LetX,Ybe metric spaces andf:X→Y. The following areequivalent:(i)fis continuous atx(i.e,(0.9)holds).(ii)f(xn)→f(x)wheneverxn→x.(iii)For every neighborhoodVoff(x),f−1(V)is a neighborhood ofx.Proof.(i)⇒(ii) is obvious. (ii)⇒(iii): If (iii) does not hold, there isa neighborhoodVoff(x) such thatBδ(x)6⊆f−1(V) for everyδ. Hencewe can choose a sequencexn∈B1/n(x) such thatf(xn)6∈f−1(V). Thusxn→xbutf(xn)6→f(x). (iii)⇒(i): ChooseV=Bε(f(x)) and observethat by (iii),Bδ(x)⊆f−1(V) for someδ.The last item implies thatfis continuous if and only if the inverse imageof every open (closed) set is again open (closed).Note: In a topological space, (iii) is used as the definition for continuity.However, in general (ii) and (iii) will no longer be equivalent unless one usesgeneralized sequences, so-called nets, where the index setNis replaced byarbitrary directed sets.Thesupportof a functionf:X→Cnis the closure of all pointsxforwhichf(x) does not vanish; that is,supp(f) ={x∈X|f(x)6= 0}.(0.10)IfXandYare metric spaces, thenX×Ytogether withd((x1,y1),(x2,y2)) =dX(x1,x2) +dY(y1,y2)(0.11)is a metric space. A sequence (xn,yn) converges to (x,y) if and only ifxn→xandyn→y. In particular, the projections onto the first (x,y)7→x,respectively, onto the second (x,y)7→y, coordinate are continuous.In particular, by the inverse triangle inequality (0.1),|d(xn,yn)−d(x,y)|≤d(xn,x) +d(yn,y),

### I’m done. OBVIOUSLY MATH IS VALUABLE FOR WITHOUT IT NOTHING WOULD EXIST I PROMISE!!!

Quantum and kinetic problems have been widely encountered in the modeling and description for many problems in science and engineering with quantum effect (wave-particle duality and/or quantization) and/or particle interaction. Over the last two decades, quantum and kinetic models have been adapted for the modeling of tremendous new experiments in physics and/or materials science, such as Bose-Einstein condensation, fermion condensation, quantum fluids of light, degenerate quantum gas, graphene and 2D materials, etc., and for the kinetic description of emerging applications in biology and social science, such as cell migration, collective motion of active matter, network formation and dynamics in social science, coherent structures in crowd and traffic dynamics, flocking, swarming, etc. These new surprising experiments and emerging applications call for greater participation of mathematicians and computational scientists to address some fundamental questions related to quantum and kinetic problems, to work together with applied scientists from the modeling to computational stages, to provide mathematical analysis for justifying different models, and to design efficient and accurate computational methods.

The thematic program will bring applied and pure mathematicians, theoretical physicists, computational materials scientists and other applied scientists together to review, develop and promote interdisciplinary researches on quantum and kinetic problems that often arise in science and engineering. It will provide a forum to highlight progress in a broad range of application areas, within a coherent theme and with greater emphasis on multiscale modeling, mathematical analysis and numerical simulation for quantum and kinetic problems with emerging applications in quantum physics and chemistry, degenerate quantum gas and quantum fluids, graphene and 2D materials, network formation and collective motion in biology and social science, etc.

I’M DONE!!! “obviously” MATH IS VALUABLE!!!
