5 Reviews
This didactically unrivalled textbook and timeless reference by Nobel Prize Laureate Claude Cohen-Tannoudji 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.

Review: Quantum Mechanics

User Review  - Helgi - Goodreads

A very linear and a good book to teach quantum mechanics. This collection of chapters written by various people and edited by Cohen may seem impersonal but it delivers its point with great clarity. Read full review

About the author (1977)

Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, born in Constantine (Algeria) in 1933, studied at the ?cole Normale Sup?rieure in Paris, where he received a postdoctoral lecture qualification in 1962. In 1973 he was accepted at the Coll?ge 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 ?cole Normale Sup?rieure.
His textbook on quantum mechanics, written together with Bernard Diu und Franck Lalo?, is one of the best-known timeless standard references in this field and is recommended on a regular basis by lecturers of undergraduate courses.
