The textbook covers the background theory of various effects discussed from first principles, as clearly as possible, to introduce students to the main ideas of quantum physics and to teach the basic mathematical methods and techniques used in the fields of advanced quantum physics, atomic physics, laser physics, nanotechnology, quantum chemistry, and theoretical mathematics. Many of the predictions of quantum physics appear to be contrary to our intuitive perceptions, and the student will learn how it comes about that microscopic objects (particles) behave in unusual ways that are called quantum effects, what we mean by quantum, and where this idea came from. The textbook is supplemented with Problems and Solutions in Quantum Physics, which contains a wide range of tutorial problems from simple confidence builders to fairly challenging problems that provide adequate understanding of the basic concepts of quantum physics.

"Zbigniew Ficek has written an excellent book that provides the basic tools for the necessary understanding of various physical phenomena associated with quantum physics. Topics are chosen at the appropriate level, and the presentation is crystal clear and concise. One of the unique strengths of this book is the immaculate balance between general theoretical formulations and concrete physical examples. This fascinating book is strongly recommended to anyone who seeks a pedagogical introduction to quantum physics."
-Prof. Ting Yu, Stevens Institute of Technology, USA

"This book proves that quantum theory can be presented in a simple way. The reader will gain understanding of the physical ideas which lead to the development of quantum mechanics, and will learn some indispensable mathematical tools. Several examples and interesting tutorial problems are provided to facilitate self-study."
-Prof. Karol Zyczkowski, Jagiellonian University and Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland

"A must-have book for those who want to be acquainted with quantum physics. The excellent text is complemented with worked examples, tutorial and discussion problems, revision questions and even pertinent questions raised by Dr. Ficek's former students. It is especially ideal for students and researchers beginning to explore the area of quantum physics."
-Prof. Ridza Wahiddin, International Islamic University Malaysia, Malaysia

"The author has an impressive knack for presenting the important and interesting ideas of quantum physics, by making an excellent balance between the vivid interpretation of the word `quantum' and its mathematical formulation. It is indeed an ideal textbook and reference for the newcomers in the field of quantum physics."
-Prof. Qiongyi He, Peking University, China
