Are you looking for a concise summary of the theory of Schrodinger operators? Here it is. Emphasizing the progress made in the last decade by Lieb, Enss, Witten and others, the three authors don't just cover general properties, but also detail multiparticle quantum mechanics - including bound states of Coulomb systems and scattering theory. This corrected and extended reprint contains updated references as well as notes on the development in the field over the past twenty years.
