This book is a distillation of Prof T Y Wu's fifty years of experience teaching quantum theory to many generations of physicists. Starting with chapters on classical physics and the old quantum theory, Prof Wu quickly develops Heisenberg's matrix mechanics and the Schroedinger equation. After a detailed treatment of the general formulation of quantum theory, standard discussions on Perturbation Theory and the Hydrogen Atom follow. A fairly exhaustive treatment of the Zeeman effect is to be found in these chapter. Many electron atoms are treated expertly. The former is treated with great depth; the latter is a good introduction to the subject.
