I have a simple question (apologies of this has been asked elsewhere, I am new here):

I am looking for a source on Quantum Mechanics for non-physicists. A little more detail on what I am looking for: I am a PhD in Discrete Maths/Optimization and I come from a pure Computer Science background. lately, I have been very interested in Quantum Computing. I like the level of detail, for example of Nielsen and Chuang's book (Chapter 2 is dedicated to the postulates and basic calculations on QM). However, I would like to go deeper into that stuff, and I am looking for a source that uses the same "vocabulary" as Nielsen and Chuang's book (Linear Algebra). I am not looking for detailed solutions of Schrödinger's equation etc.

If you have any suggestions, let me know. I tried Sakurai's book but this is not what I'm looking for. Actually, something like Susskind & Friedman book (from the theoretical minimum series) is exactly what I look for, but on more advanced level, but I do not know of this exists.

Cheers!
