This volume contains contributions, written by specialists, which deal with various aspects of the structure and dynamics of non-rigid molecules. Together these papers provide an authoritative overview of research and progress in this field. The contents are divided into three sections which cover, respectively: fundamental questions in non-rigid molecular problems; the structure and symmetry of non-rigid molecular systems; and the dynamics of non-rigid molecular systems. This text should be of interest to researchers and graduate students of molecular physics and theoretical physics.
