The approach to quantum mechanics in the preceding chapter is based on the description of the time evolution of a state by means of a differential equation. In this chapter, we choose a different approach. We consider (for now) not the Schrödinger equation or another description of the space-time behavior, but instead the emphasis is now on how we can define states (for the moment, time-independent states).
