Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contains only minor changes and corrections from the first edition. The text bridges the gap between quantum chemistry and solid- state theory. The first half contains new concepts developed for treating many-body and correlation effects, combining standard quantum chemical methods with projection techniques, Greens function methods and Monte-Carlo techniques. The second half deals with applications of the theory to molecules, semiconductors, transition metals, heavy fermion systems, and the new high-Tc superconducting materials. Annotation c.
