Overview

This series edited by Nobel Prize winner Ida Prigogine and renowned authority Stuart A. Rice provides general information about a wide variety of topics in chemical physics. Experts present comprehensive analyses of subjects of interest and to encourage the expression of individual points of view. This approach to presenting an overview of a subject will both stimulate new research and serve as a personalized learning text for beginners in the field.

From The Critics
Nine recent papers represent the current state of chemical physics. They discuss transition path sampling, chemical reaction dynamics, chaos, single molecule spectroscopy, self-similarity, electron- correlated approaches, the computational chemistry of acids, cooperative effects of hydrogen bonding, and nonadiabatic electron- transfer reactions. Numerous charts and graphs provide a visual display of the data. The contributors include chemical engineers, chemical biologists, and other scientists from the United States, Japan, Brazil, and Germany. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Four papers present an overview and analysis of Doppler spectroscopy used with photofragmentation; vibrational predissociation dynamics of Van der Waals complexes and product rotational state distributions; electron scattering by small molecules; and time-dependent semiclassical mechanics. For researchers and students in chemical physics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"…a detailed and comprehensive account of the molecular-based modeling that has been developed to obtain a theoretical understanding of dielectric responses in aqueous media." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, August 18, 2004)

INTRODUCTION

Few of us can any longer keep up with the flood of scientific literature, even in specialized subfields. Any attempt to do more and be broadly educated with respect to a large domain of science has the appearance of tilting at windmills. Yet the synthesis of ideas drawn from different subjects into new, powerful, general concepts is as valuable as ever, and the desire to remain educated persists in all scientists. This series, Advances in Chemical Physics, is devoted to helping the reader obtain general information about a wide variety of topics in chemical physics, a field that we interpret very broadly. Our intent is to have experts present comprenhensive analyses of subjects of interest and to encourage the expression of individual points of view. We hope that this approach to the presentation of an overview of a subject will both stimulate new research and serve as a personalized learning text for beginners in a field.
