Charge and energy transfer dynamics in molecular systems, 3d ed.


Charge and energy transfer dynamics in molecular systems, 3d ed.

Volkhard, May and Oliver Kuhn.



562 pages




Volkhard (physics, Humboldt U., Berlin) and Kuhn (theoretical physics, U. of Rostock, Denmark) continue to keep their textbook and reference current with developments in the study of molecular systems. It supports courses for theoretically and experimentally oriented graduate and undergraduate students in molecular physics, theoretical chemistry, physical chemistry, and biophysics who are interested in transfer phenomena. They are expected to be familiar with basic quantum mechanics, but special topics and more involved derivations are explained. The topics are electronic and vibrational molecular states; dynamics of isolated and open quantum systems; the interaction of molecular systems with radiation fields; energy redistribution, relaxation, and de-phasing in vibrational dynamics; intra-molecular electronic transitions; electron transfer; proton transfer; and excitiation energy transfer. Earlier editions were published in 2000 and 2006.
