From the reviews of the first edition:"This textbook on quantum mechanics is the corrected second printing of the book, that first appeared in 2002. ... Great attention is paid to give some intuition of the phenomen ... . Connection to recent experiments and topics, objects of new research developments, as well as to the historical aspects, is made whenever possible. Also each chapter ends with nice bibliography ... together with very interesting exercises ... . " (Bassano Vacchini, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1087, 2006)
