By Harald Friedrich

This extended and up-to-date well-established textbook comprises a sophisticated presentation
of quantum mechanics tailored to the necessities of recent atomic physics. It
includes subject matters of present curiosity similar to semiclassical idea, chaos, atom optics and
Bose-Einstein condensation in atomic gases. which will facilitate the consolidation
of the cloth lined, numerous difficulties are incorporated, including complete
solutions. The emphasis on idea allows the reader to understand the fundamental
assumptions underlying ordinary theoretical constructs and to embark on independent
research projects.
The fourth version of Theoretical Atomic Physics includes an

updated therapy of the sections regarding scattering idea and near-threshold

phenomena show up within the behaviour of chilly atoms (and molecules). targeted attention
is given to the quantization of weakly certain states slightly below the continuum threshold
and to low-energy scattering and quantum mirrored image simply above. specific emphasis
is laid at the basic ameliorations among long-ranged Coulombic potentials
and shorter-ranged potentials falling off speedier than 1/rat huge distances r. The new
sections on tunable near-threshold Feshbach resonances and on scattering in spatial
dimensions additionally handle difficulties appropriate for present and destiny examine within the field
of chilly (and ultra-cold) atoms. Graduate scholars and researchers will locate this e-book a
valuable source and entire reference alike.

Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis, Third Edition

The up to date and masses extended 3e of the instruction manual of Radioactivity research is an authoritative reference offering the foundations, functional suggestions, and tactics for the actual size of radioactivity from the very low degrees encountered within the setting to raised degrees measured in radioisotope learn, medical laboratories, organic sciences, radionuclide standardization, nuclear medication, nuclear energy, and gas cycle amenities and within the implementation of nuclear forensic research and nuclear safeguards.

Atomic Physics (Oxford Master Series in Atomic, Optical and Laser Physics)

This article will completely replace the prevailing literature on atomic physics. meant to accompany a complicated undergraduate path in atomic physics, the booklet will lead the scholars as much as the newest advances and the purposes to Bose-Einstein Condensation of atoms, matter-wave inter-ferometry and quantum computing with trapped ions.
