Theoretical Atomic Physics

This demonstrated textual content and reference comprises a sophisticated presentation of quantum mechanics tailored to the necessities of recent atomic physics. It comprises themes of significant present curiosity similar to semiclassical thought, chaos and Bose-Einstein condensation in atomic gases. The 3rd variation of Theoretical Atomic Physics extends the profitable moment variation with a close remedy of the wave movement of atoms close to the anticlassical or severe quantum regime, and it additionally includes an advent to a few points of atom optics that are suitable for present and destiny experiments regarding ultra-cold atoms.
