Summary 
"Quantum Oscillators is a valuable source of information and an excellent supplementary text in courses on spectroscopy of hydrogenbonded systems, one of the unsolved problems of science. This reference provides a reasonable and accessible entrance to the difficult subject of nonequilibrium quantum mechanics and is a timely update of classical works while, at the same time, providing a comprehensive treatment of hydrogen bonding. Also included is an appendix that summarizes mathematical concepts needed to understand the basis of the theory" Provided by publisher 

"The book is divided into four parts. The first part is devoted to the concepts of quantum mechanics the knowledge of which is necessary for a good understanding of the dynamics of quantum oscillator which may be damped, and deals with time independent quantum mechanics and time dependent quantum mechanics" Provided by publisher
