Relations Between Fourier Analysis and Quantum - Dirac's Approach in Modern Style


We study the "momentum space" and "position space" "representation" of quantum systems (related by the Fourier-Plancherel transform), from the point-of-view of "generalized" orthonormal bases (Dirac's delta functions and pure states). As time allows, we'll discuss some daunting questions.
