Not yet rated | write a review
Providing a deeper understanding of the microscopic world through quantum theory, this supplementary text covers a wider range of topics than conventional textbooks. Emphasis is given to modern achievements such as entanglement, quantum teleportation, and Bose-Einstein condensation. Macroscopic quantum effects of practical relevance, for example superconductivity and the quantum Hall effect, are also described. The author discusses the exciting prospects for quantum computing in the future.

Editorial Reviews

"The expertise of Paul shows in the easy transitions made between discussions of theory and experiment, particularly in subjects related to quantum optics."
