About the Author
Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, born in Constantine (Algeria) in 1933, studied at the ï¿½cole Normale Supï¿½rieure in Paris, where he received a postdoctoral lecture qualification in 1962. In 1973 he was accepted at the Collï¿½ge de France, and in 1981 became a member of the Academy of Sciences. In 1997, Claude Cohen-Tannoudji was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his research on laser cooling of neutral atoms (together with Steven Chu and William D. Phillips). The method is relevant for the development of precise atomic clocks, which are used for positioning and navigation. His is currently affiliated to the Laboratoire de Physique at the ï¿½cole Normale Supï¿½rieure.
His textbook on quantum mechanics, written together with Bernard Diu und Franck Laloï¿½, is one of the best-known timeless standard references in this field and is recommended on a regular basis by lecturers of undergraduate courses.

Once you open the book to a page and try to lay it flat on a table, the pages separate from the glue and begin coming out almost immediately. I've already taped several pages back into my (3 month old) copy, and some classmates have had their books already completely separate in two. To make things even worse, you will not find any other (recently printed) versions of this book, as it's almost 40 years old and the publishers, Wiley-VCH, have decided to use this opportunity to price gouge graduate students.
