not yet rated|write a review
This text attempts to present the whole range of quantum mechanics, from the fundamental assumptions to the experimental numbers. The author presents a unified theoretical formulation and includes examples from recent research. Earlier editions of this text have become a standard text and reference work; it has been reprinted and translated. In this third edition, the author has made some minor corrections of the previous edition and has added two new chapters: one on quantal phase factors and their consequences (the "Berry phase") and another on the gauge theory of molecular physics.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:"The book is the third edition of a text first published in 1979. The subsequent editions, and in particular, this edition itself, has now become popular. In our opinion this book will be most useful for the students who have finished a usual university quantum mechanics course, and now want research in atomics and molecular physics. . This book is a very clearly written advanced quantum mechanics text stressing atomic molecular, and to some extent, nuclear physics topics to illustrate the formal structure." (S S Bhattacharyya, Indian Journal of Physics, Vol. 78 (12), 2004)"This is a successful book on quantum mechanics which is intended to be both a textbook for graduate students and a handbook for research workers. . All that needs to be said is that if anyone reading this review is unaware of the book, one should have a good look at it in one's library and in the unlikely event of it not being in the library either, one should request the librarian to get a copy." (Chandra Shekhar Sharma, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 995 (20), 2002)
