About the Author

Michel Le Bellac is Emeritus Professor at the University of Nice and a well-known elementary particle theorist. He graduated from the Ecole Normale Superieure in 1962, before conducting research with CNRS. In 1967 he returned to the University of Nice and was appointed Full Professor of Physics in 1971, a position he held for over 30 years. His main fields of research have been the theory of elementary particles and field theory at finite temperatures. He has published four other books in French and three other books in English, including Thermal Field Theory (Cambridge University Press, 1996) and Equilibrium and Non-equilibrium Statistical Thermodynamics (with Fabrice Mortessagne and G. George Bartouni, Cambridge University Press, 2004).


Review of the French edition: 'This new text comes closest to the contemporary heart of the discipline and I cannot recommend it strongly enough to everyone interested in quantum mechanics, and especially students and teachers ... this text is the best one available for a course designed to expose students to the role played by quantum mechanics in today's world.' Edouard Brezin, Bulletin de la Societe Francaise de Physique
Review of the French edition: 'I greatly admire the effort made by the author to give the reader such a modern and compelling view of quantum physics ... I am sure that this text will lead to a better comprehension of quantum physics and will stimulate greater interest in this absolutely central discipline. I would like to thank Michel Le Bellac for this important contribution which will certainly give physics a more exciting image.' Claude Cohen-Tannoudji
Review of the French edition: 'Throughout the book, Le Bellac teaches the fundamentals of quantum physics using an original approach that relies primarily on an algebraic treatment, and on the systematic use of symmetry principles. This is a textbook for a modern course on quantum physics, written for advanced undergraduate and graduate scientists.' L'enseignement mathematique
'This book is well written and the author speaks with authority on the subject.' Contemporary Physics
