**Quantum Spin Systems on Infinite Lattices**

by Pieter Naaijkens

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 90

**Description**:

These are the lecture notes for a one semester course at Leibniz University Hannover. The main aim of the course is to give an introduction to the mathematical methods used in describing discrete quantum systems consisting of infinitely many sites. Such systems can be used, for example, to model some materials in condensed matter physics or lattice gases.
