The Hamilton method -- The problem of quantization -- Quantization on curved surfaces -- Quantization on flat surfaces.
Four concise, brilliant lectures on mathematical methods in quantum mechanics from Nobel Prize–winning quantum pioneer. The first lecture is an introduction to visualizing quantum theory through the use of classical mechanics. The remaining lectures build on that idea, showing how one can start with a classical field theory and end up with a quantum field theory, and examining the possibility of building a relativistic quantum theory on curved surfaces or flat surfaces.
