About this Book
This book offers advanced students and researchers an up-to-date quantum treatment of the interaction of atoms with electromagnetic radiation. Problems and solutions are used to develop concepts, terminology, and the principal results of the quantum theory of radiative processes in atoms. Concepts covered include: radiative transitions between discrete states in atomic systems, atomic photoprocesses involving free particles, coherent phenomena in radiative transitions, extensive treatment of line-broadening mechanisms, atoms in strong fields and theory of angular momentum.
