About this Textbook

This textbook presents problems with detailed solutions showing how to apply quantum theory to modern physics. The text is divided in three parts, the first dealing with elementary particles, nuclei and atoms, the second presents quantum entanglement and measurement. Finally complex systems are examinated in depth. The aim of the text is to guide the student towards applying quantum mechanics to research problems. Advanced undergraduates and graduate students will find a rich and challenging source for improving their skills.

This new edition has been extended with sections on neutrino oscillations, quantized vortices in Bose-Einstein condensates, quantum correlations in multi-particle systems, Bloch oscillations in periodic lattices and non-destructive quantum measurements.


About the authors

Professor Jean-Louis Basdevant is a High energy physicist, author of physics textbooks and science history books.  A former student of Ecole Normale Supérieure, he was from 1975 to 2005 professor of physics at the Ecole Polytechnique, where he taught quantum physics to generations of students, and also chaired the physics department. In research, his work focused on the three-body problem in quantum mechanics, elementary particles, quantum field theory and astrophysics.

Professor Jean Dalibard is a professor at Collège de France and a member of the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel. He was a professor at Ecole Polytechnique from 1989 to 2015, and taught quantum physics, statistical physics and quantum optics. His current research is devoted to the properties of ultracold quantum matter, like Bose-Einstein condensates and superfluids. He is a member of the French Academy of Sciences.
