This book presents most of the techniques used in the microlocal treatment of semiclassical problems coming from quantum physics. Both the standard C8 pseudodifferential calculus and the analytic microlocal analysis is developed, in a context which remains intentionally global so that only the relevant difficulties of the theory are encountered. The originality lies in the fact that the main features of analytic microlocal analysis are derived from a single and elementary a priori estimate. Various exercises illustrate the chief results of each chapter while introducing the reader to further developments of the theory. This book is aimed at non-specialists of the subject and the only required prerequisite is a basic knowledge of the theory of distributions.
