Representing Quantum Mechanics: ideas from Frobenius to Heisenberg and von Neumann

Quantum mechanics as formulated by Heisenberg is based on certain commutation relations between operators. It was shown by von Neumann that these  canonical commutation relations have an essentially  unique representation in terms of concretely specified operators. In this talk we will describe the intellectual  backdrop to von Neumann's proof, an intertwining of ideas developed by Frobenius, Weyl, Heisenberg, and others.
