This text on atomic structure is intermediate in level between purely introductory general texts on 'modern physics' and advanced specialized treatises. It is short enough to be read in the time normally devoted to atomic structure in physics degree courses. Throughout the book real-life examples from atomic spectroscopy are discussed alongside the exposition of the theory, both to give a feeling for orders of magnitude and to impart a real understanding of the application of elementary quantum mechanics.
