Try the first chapter of "Principles of Quantum Mechanics - R. Shankar" called Mathematical introduction,and you will know exactly what you are going to learn

I skimmed through it, and although it seems good, I'm always a little suspect of physics texts that try to teach math. My experience is that they are generally rushed, and important ideas and concepts are missed in the process. Would you happen to know a book exclusively dedicated to the same topics, but more thorough?Try the first chapter of "Principles of Quantum Mechanics - R.

That stuff I know already. My linear prof had promised, in the beginning of the course, to discuss infinite-dimensional vector spaces, as well as certain types of matrices and their properties (ie hermitean, adjoint, etc.)

The book by https://www.amazon.com/dp/0486453278/?tag=pfamazon01-20 may be what you're looking for. At least you'll find links to many similar books on that page.

You could also try a math methods book like https://www.amazon.com/dp/048667164X/?tag=pfamazon01-20.

Or the many books aimed at https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_...chanics+for+mathematicians"&tag=pfamazon01-20.

So try Dirac's book...I think in QM you will ned most Kets and Bras Algabra
