`This is a very timely book. The author has chosen a very modern set of topics, ones that increasingly are at the heart of the field of atomic and optical physics... I am aware of no competing textbook that offers this wide selection of topics at the cutting edge of this discipline.' Chris Greene, University of Colorado, Boulder `...a useful text on atomic physics and fills something of a gap between traditional textbooks and highly specialised books on the more modern topics.' Charles Adams, University of Durham `The approach to the modern topics, in particular the many connections to the classical developments of the field is masterly done.' Klaus Molmer, University of Aarhus
