Description

This text provides a uniform and consistent approach to diversified problems encountered in the study of dynamical processes in condensed phase molecular systems. Given the broad interdisciplinary aspect of this subject, the book focuses on three themes: coverage of needed background material, in-depth introduction of methodologies, and analysis of several key applications. The uniform approach and common language used in all discussions help to develop general understanding and insight on condensed phases chemical dynamics. The applications discussed are among the most fundamental processes that underlie physical, chemical, and biological phenomena in complex systems.show more

Review quote

... excellent without any doubt.' * Peter Rossky, University of Texas, Austin * ... an exceptionally timely book with a broad readership at the graduate level. * Gregory Voth, University of Utah * This is an excellent book which is intended to be a text for a graduate course in condensed matter chemistry and physics. It is extremely well written from the pedagogic and literary points of view. I particularly enjoyed the extremely pertinent quotations from Lucretius at the beginning of each chapter. * Journal of Statistical Physics, March 2007, Irwin Oppenheim, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA * Beautifully and clearly written, describing mathematics in necessary detail without overloading the reader, and very neatly and concisely explaining physics of the described phenomena. * European Journal of Chemical Physics and Physical Chemistry, August 2007 *show more
