From the reviewers of the proposal:
"I am deeply convinced that this book will be of much value for any students entering the ?quantum world?. It will also be a useful reference for the more experienced scientists, as its topics extend into more recent achievements and approaches."
"I expect that this work will be of the highest benefit for teachers and students."
"This proposal clearly breathes a lot of expertise and experience in teaching this subject and what is lacking. This advanced textbook would represent a very attractive choice, in particular for curricula including advanced quantum theory courses."
"Due to the chosen problem-solving oriented approach, and its structure, this book/or book set is unique and very attractive for curricula on advanced quantum physics."
"There is no doubt that he (the author) can safely be regarded as being easily in the top quartile, and probably in the top 10%, of the world's leading theoretical ph
"This two-volume set can be naturally divided into two semester courses, and contains a full modern graduate course in quantum physics." (ETDE Energy database, 2011)
From the Back Cover
This two-volume set, naturally divided into two semester parts, contains a full modern graduate course in quantum physics. The idea is to teach graduate students how to practically use quantum theory by presenting the fundamental knowledge and gradually moving on to broad applications, including atomic, nuclear, relativistic and many-body physics, as well as subfields of current interest, such as quantum chaos and quantum entanglement. The author discusses topics that are not usually covered in standard textbooks and has written the book in such a way that every subject contains varying layers of difficulty, so that the instructor can decide where to stop. Problems and solutions are integrated throughout the text.
