The third edition had already been enlarged by the inclusion of new developments such as the direct observation of individual atoms in Paul traps, and of atoms in molecules on solid surfaces using the scanning tunneling microscope. Furthermore, new experiments in atomic interferometry and the possibility of laser cooling of atomic beams were added. The fourth English edition takes minor corrections and additions into account and remains a unique introduction to both experiments and theory of the physics of atoms and quanta. The student will find 160 problems and their solutions, making this book a real study text.

From the reviews: "This book gives a coherent presentation of both the experimental and the theoretical aspects of these subjects. Since 1984, when it was first published, it is now in its 6th edition which is a clear indication that this volume has gained already a large hearing in the scientific world. A characteristic feature of this book is that the authors take the opportunity of each new edition to include the latest development in this very active field. In the 6th edition, in particular, they have added an entire new chapter dealing with entangled wave-functions, the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox, Bells inequalities, the paradox of Schrodinger's cat the concept of decohrence, Bose-Einstein condensation, quantum computers and quantum information theory. ...I recommend this book unreservedly for its high pedagogical value, more specially to the students starting their Master degree (Lere licence)."

. This volume gives a coherent presentation of both the experimental and the theoretical aspects of atomic and quantum physics and can serve as an excellent advanced book for students of physics and also for students of neighboring disciplines such as chemistry and electrical engineering.
