This collection of papers - starting with a brilliant review article by one of the masters of the field - gives an excellent view of our present knowledge of matter. Partially basing his work on a variational formulation of quantum mechanics E.H. Lieb links the difficult question of stability of matter with deep problems of functional analysis. In this collection the reader will find general results together with deep insights into quantum systems combined in papers on the structure of atoms and molecules, on the thermodynamics limit, and on stellar structure. The book is suitable as an accompanying text for a graduate course in quantum mechanics.

From the Back Cover:

This collection of papers -- starting with a brilliant article by one of the masters of the field -- gives an excellent current review of our knowledge of matter. Partially basing his own work on a variational formulation of quantum mechanics, E.H. Lieb links the difficult question of the stability of matter with important problems in functional analysis. Here the reader will find general results together with deep insights into quantum systems combined with papers on the structure of atoms and molecules, the thermodynamic limit, and stellar structures. The book is suitable as an accompanying text or recommended reading for a graduate course in quantum mechanics. In the third edition, two new sections were added: one contains papers on quantum electrodynamics, and the other on Boson systems. In this fourth edition, these topics have been further developed, extending the book by approximately 120 pages.

Review:

 From the reviews:

"The rapid soldout of the two previous editions by itself demonstrates the high value of this book. The reader will have indeed the opportunity to gaze on the formidable mastering of functional analysis by Elliot Lieb and to discover mathematical and Physical depths in the description of, after all, familar physical phenomena. [...] The third edition contains new developments compared to previous ones, witnessing that the field is still lively. In particular there are important results concerning systems of bosons. [...] In conclusion, this book is a delight for readers interested in the stability and related properties of many-body systems. It, moreover, offers the oppertunity to admire the elegant mathematical considerations and the penetrating physical insight of a great theoretician." (Physicalia, 2002)
