Broken up in to three sections, this book gives a unified explanation of all the significant data on the Cold Fusion Phenomena to date. It presents a history of the Cold Fusion Phenomenon (CFP), gives the fundamental experimental results of the CFP and presents a quantum mechanical treatment of physical problems associated with cold fusion.

• Overviews the abundance of research and investigation that followed the 'cold fusion scandal' in 1989.
• Explores the fundamental science behind the original Fleischmann experiment
