About this Textbook

By introducing readers to relativistic quantum field theory, this class-tested textbook delivers a concise and modern course in quantum electrodynamics. Its self-contained nature is enhanced by detailed derivations and introductory materials on quantum mechanics and special relativity. This advanced undergraduate textbook employs the elementary concepts of the Schrödinger equation, Dirac notation, the harmonic oscillator and the hydrogen atom in a clear and up-to-date structure, organized around topics in waves, particles and interactions. The text includes many worked problems and examples, end-of-chapter exercises and summaries, as well as enrichment topics and boxed formulas, derivations and definitions. The author's extensive and award-winning research in lasers and quantum optics, coupled with more than 20 years of teaching experience with the course, well equipped him for this task.

About the authors

Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schleich has more than 20 years of teaching experience at the University of Ulm. His research interests focus on theoretical quantum optics. Tests of general relativity with the help of cold atoms and, in particular, Bose Einstein condensates, accelerator physics and matter wave optics giving rise to the quantum free electron laser, the connection between number theory and quantum mechanics as well as fundamental questions about the theory of measurement in quantum mechanics and insights provided by the modern techniques of experimental quantum optics represent only a few of many more examples illustrating interesting border lines between quantum optics and other fields.

He has received several awards for his outstanding contributions to quantum optics, including the Otto-Hahn-Medal, the Ernst Abbe Medal, the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Price, the Max Planck Research Award and the Willis E. Lamb Award for Laser Science and Quantum Optics.
