January 1991

This didactically unrivalled textbook and timeless reference by
Nobel Prize Laureate Claude CohenTannoudji separates essential
underlying principles of quantum mechanics from specific
applications and practical examples and deals with each of them in
a different section. Chapters emphasize principles; complementary
sections supply applications. The book provides a qualitative
introduction to quantum mechanical ideas; a systematic, complete
and elaborate presentation of all the mathematical tools and
postulates needed, including a discussion of their physical content
and applications.
The book is recommended on a regular basis by lecturers of undergraduate courses.

Claude CohenTannoudji, born in Constantine (Algeria) in 1933,
studied at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, where
he received a postdoctoral lecture qualification in 1962. In 1973
he was accepted at the Collège de France, and in 1981 became a
member of the Academy of Sciences. In 1997, Claude CohenTannoudji
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
École Normale Supérieure.
His textbook on quantum mechanics, written together with Bernard Diu und Franck Laloë, is one of the bestknown timeless standard references in this field and is recommended on a regular basis by lecturers of undergraduate courses.
