By Hermann Haken, Hans Christoph Wolf

The hugely confident confirmation and large reception that this e-book keeps to obtain from professors and scholars ahke is the party for this seventh version. once more we've incorporated a couple of priceless feedback for advancements, which we tackle as acceptable. moreover, we confer with a couple of advancements in atomic physics. of those new advancements in regard to unique atoms, we point out antihydrogen in par­ ticular, simply because primary experiments in topic and antimatter should be anticipated sooner or later. additionally, we now have inserted a bankruptcy at the behaviour of atoms in robust elec­ trical fields. Experiments with corresponding lasers might just recently be discovered. We thank our Jenaer colleague, R. Sauerbrey, for his contribution of this bankruptcy. we now have additionally incorporated a brand new bankruptcy at the behaviour of the hydrogen atom in robust magnetic fields. the implications are of profound curiosity for 2 very assorted fields of physics: at the one hand, in accordance with classical physics, one expects chaotic behaviour from Rydberg atoms in magnetic fields that may be created within the laborato­ ry; therefore, an organization might be attracted to facets of chaos idea and the issues of quantum chaos. however, the very powerful fields precious for low quantum numbers are discovered within the cosmos, specifically with white dwarfs and neutron stars.
