Product description


This is an excellent book, which should belong on every student's bookshelf. (Chemisch Weekblad)

It was a pleasure to see this short book arrive for review. With less than 100 well laid-out pages, it is not too daunting for undrgraduates. It is well written, with good explanations and a large number of clearly-drawn diagrams. It is also very down to earth ... an excellent little book with much to recommend it for introductory atomic physics courses ... I have no hesitation in recommending it for physics undergraduates. (Dr R.C. Thompson, Contemporary Physics, 1994, Volume 35, number 6)


This primer provides a systematic and rigorous introduction to the spectra and electronic structure of atoms, beginning with the hydrogen atom, and following a logical progression through the alkali metals, and the helium atom, to atoms with many unpaired electrons. Emphasis is placed on the explanation of the observed spectra using elementary quantum theory.
