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. The structure and properties of atoms are the basis of Chemistry, and hence of Biology. Atomic Physics underlies the study of Astrophysics and Solid State Physics.

This is a set of lecture notes prepared for a course on Atomic Physics for second-year graduate students. The aim in this course was to provide opportunities for hands-on practice in the calculation of atomic wave functions and energies.
by Max Born - G.Bell And Sons Limited.
This book is a classical work of an atomic physics pioneer. The Mechanics Of The Atom by Max Born is not an elementary textbook, but supposes the reader to have some knowledge of the experimental facts and their explanation.
