Very Good: shows light wear to extremities; former owner's name at front free endpaper and at the top edge and fore edge; slightest spine lean. Binding secure; text clean. Despite noted flaws, remains clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 353pp. First Ed, unstated. Hardback: No DJ 'as issued'. Atomic hydrogen, the simplest of all stable atoms, has been a challenge to spectroscopists and theoreticians for many years. Here, as in similar systems like positronium, muonium and possibly helium, the accuracy of theoretical predictions is comparable to that of experimental measurements. Hence exciting confrontations are possible. This together with expected large experimental improvements explains the strong interest in the symposium held in Pisa in June-July 1988. The resulting book completely covers the precision spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen and hydrogen-like systems, and also discusses aspects of QED and the influence of strong fields.
Good+ 0387505792. Shelf wear to the spine edges and the corners. Slight fading to the spine. There are a couple of small stains to the front cover. There is scattered underlining and/or former owner's margin notations to the text in pencil, affecting about 20 pages.; 9 X 6 X 1 inches; 353 pages.
