Couverture de l’ouvrage Quantum physics: the bottom-up approach
This concise tutorial provides the bachelor student and the practitioner with a short text on quantum physics that allows them to understand a wealth of quantum phenomena based on a compact, well readable, yet still concise and accurate description of nonrelativistic quantum theory. This quadrature of the circle is achieved by concentrating first on the simplest quantum system that still displays all basic features of quantum theory, namely, a system with only two quantized energy levels. For most readers it is very helpful to understand such simple systems before slowly proceeding to more demanding topics like particle entanglement, quantum chaos, or the use of irreducible tensors. This tutorial does not intend to replace the standard textbooks on quantum mechanics, but will help the average student to understand them, often for the first time.
Some simple two-level systems. Equations of motion. Manipulation of spins. Spooky action at a distance. Atomic two-level systems. Other two-level systems. Excursions in parameter space.

Dirk Dubbers, born 1943 in Dresden/Germany, studied physics at Göttingen and Heidelberg (doctorate and habilitation at Heidelberg University). This was followed by several long-term stays at the European neutron facility Institut Laue-Langevin at Grenoble, France, among them as Director of ILL. He held several professorships at Technical University Munich and Heidelberg University. In 1991 Dirk Dubbers has received the Stern-Gerlach Award of the German Physical Society. The former Dean of Physics Department and former Director of the Physics Institute of Heidelberg University is also a honorary doctor of Vienna University of Technology.

H.-J. Stöckmann, born 1945 in Göttingen/Germany, studied physics at the university of Heidelberg where he obtained his PhD in 1972 and the degree of habilitation in 1978. Since 1979 he is professor of experimental physics at the university of Marburg, where he developed the microwave techniques to study experimentally the quantum-mechanical properties of chaotic and disordered systems. He is author of an introductory monograph on quantum chaos.
