Atoms in a Magnetic Field: Quantum Mechanical Treatment

Part of the Advanced Texts in Physics book series (ADTP)


The ordinary Zeeman effect is a beautiful example of the fact that even with classical physics, one can obtain results similar to those of strict quantum theory. In order to set our earlier results on a firm basis, however, we shall now go through the strict quantum theoretical treatment.
