Lectures on Atomic Physics
by Walter R. Johnson
Publisher: University of Notre Dame 2006
Number of pages: 262
This is a set of lecture notes prepared for a course on Atomic Physics for second-year graduate students, given at Notre Dame during the spring semester of 1994. The aim in this course was to provide opportunities for hands-on practice in the calculation of atomic wave functions and energies.

Our aim is to understand Atomic Physics, not just to illustrate the mathematics of Quantum Mechanics. This is both interesting and important, for Atomic Physics is the foundation for a wide range of basic science and practical technology.
by C. Sharp Cook - Van Nostrand
The general coverage of the subject of atomic and nuclear physics provides the student who is planning to continue his studies of physics a reason able base for an understanding of many of the advanced texts and courses that he encounters later.
