At this point I prefer a physics-style math book on these but real-math books are OK too.

Thanks

Have you read the classic by Dirac? It was the seminal book that put QM on a firm mathematical footing.

I'm currently trying to get through https://www.amazon.com/dp/0821846302/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20. It includes these topics in its contents, and so far has been satisfyingly rigorous and readable, as long as you keep a blackboard or a pad of scratch paper handy.

Not completely, but actually that's not what I want. Maybe I should've used a math prefix! The point is, I want to learn the things I mentioned in my first post and I want to learn them in the way people think about them today. My purpose is not just to help me learn QM better, I like the math because of the math too. But Dirac's book doesn't cover those subjects and also is a physics book. What I want, is at least a physics-style math book.Have you read the classic by Dirac? It was the seminal book that put QM on a firm mathematical footing.

That's more like it, thanks. But I still appreciate if someone comes up with a book a bit more mathematical in nature!:DI'm currently trying to get through https://www.amazon.com/dp/0821846302/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20.

For other interesting approaches, I recommend:

The lecture notes of Woit: http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/QM/
