Item description for The Physics of Atoms and Quanta: Introduction to Experiments and Theory (Advanced Texts in Physics) by W.D. Brewer Hermann Haken...

The Physics of Atoms and Quanta is a thorough introduction to experiments and theory in this field. Every classical and modern aspect is included and discussed in detail. The new edition is completely revised, new sections on atoms in strong electric fields and high magnetic fields complete the comprehensive coverage of all topics related to atoms and quanta.

All new developments, such as new experiments on quantum entanglement, the quantum computer, quantum information, the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradoxon, Bell's inequality, Schrdinger's cat, decoherence, Bose-Einstein-Condensation and the atom laser are discussed. Over 170 problems and their solutions help deepen the insight in this subject area and make this book a real study text.

The more advanced book by the same authors entitled Molecular Physics and Elements of Quantum Chemistry coplements this unique textbook.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Physics of Atoms and Quanta: Introduction to Experiments and Theory (Advanced Texts in Physics)?

A rare work  Jul 5, 2007
This book is indeed clear and easy to read and undoubtedly useful for advanced undergraduates and I imagine it would be a good review for would-be postgraduates. It also introduces more advanced topics, such as the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations and introduces many topical issues. Very good at conveying the mathematical 'tricks of the trade' but unlike so many texts on quantum physics, this book is actually a physics book! Not only does it deal with the mathematical structure of the theory, but it has a satisfying and detailed presentation of the experiments! It is also superbly illustrated (as all text books should be!). I find that too many authours these days seem to care more for the maths than the physics - let us not forget what physics is for! In my mind this is one of the best advanced undergraduate quantum physics texts that I have seen. It is also a great educational work - solutions to problems are provided which is essential for self-study, which this book is admirably suited for (in addition to being quite suitable for directly supporting a taught course). This book is very student friendly, a rare thing these days, and far more readable and entertaining than many other books on quantum physics.
OK book on Atom Physics  Aug 18, 2000
This book is very readable and very clear. It can be used in advanced undergrad courses on atom physics. It treats the development of Atom Physics theory and experiments (Rutherford, Bohr etc.). It provides explanations to many practical quantum problems in the field of atom physics, so it can also be used to clarify problems in a Quantum Physics course. Some example problems briefly discussed in books like Gasiorowicz or David Griffiths on QF were very well explained here. Quite complete on the subject of Atom Physics. Exercises with (brief) solutions. German authors seem to have done a thorough job. Negative points: heavy, expensive, limited subject, published some time ago. I consider it a good buy afterall.
