Annotation -
A thorough two term course on quantum theory for students of both experimental and theoretical physics. It starts with the formal structure of QT and then builds up the standard techniques (perturbation theory stacionary and time dependent, variational principle, second quantisation, etc) to study the scattering theory, energy states in atoms and molecules, interactions of these systems with static fields and radiation. Dirac equation stands as an introduction to the relativistic QT.
