Research and Markets: Transitions In Molecular Systems Is Indispensable Reading For Those Working In Molecular Physics, Physical Chemistry And Laser Physics.

DUBLIN -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Transitions in Molecular Systems" to their offering.

Filling the gap for a book covering vibronic, nonadiabatic and diabatic couplings as well as radiationless processes in context, this monograph compiles classic and cutting-edge work from numerous researchers into one handy source.

Alongside a description of radiationless processes in statistical large molecules and calculational methods for intramolecular distributions, the authors also investigate the nuclear coordinate dependence of matrix elements. Whole chapters are devoted to the mathematical description of the lifetime and decay of a prepared states as well as miscellaneous applications. The text is supplemented by a number of appendices for optimum usability.

With its integration of the necessary mathematical rigor, this is primarily intended for graduate students in theoretical physics and chemistry, but is also indispensable reading for those working in molecular physics, physical chemistry and laser physics.

Key Topics Covered:

* Preface.

* 1 Introduction.

* 2 Formal Decay Theory of Coupled Unstable States.

* 3 Description of Radiationless Processes in Statistical Large Molecules.

* A.2 Evaluation of the Diagonal Matrix Element of Gss.

* Appendix B: The Coefficients of the Recurrence Equation.

* Appendix C: The Coefficients of the Recurrence Equations.

* Appendix D: Solution of a Class of Integrals.

* Appendix E: Quantization of the Radiation Field.

* Appendix F: The Molecular Eigenstates.

* Appendix G: The Effective Hamiltonian and Its Properties.

* Appendix H: The Mechanism of Nonradiative Energy Transfer.

* Appendix I: Evaluation of the Coefficients bmn, cmn, and bm in the Recurrence Equations 8.28 and 8.29.

* Appendix J: Evaluation of the Position Expectation Values of xsm(qs).

* Appendix K: Vibronic Coupling Between Two Electronic States: The Pseudo-JahnTeller Effect.

* References.

* Index.


Hans Joachim Kupka earned his PhD in Laser Physics at the Technical University of Wroclaw and from 1968 he researched at the Institute for Low Temperature and Structure Research at the Polish Academy of Science. In 1977, he joined the Heinrich Heine University in Dusseldorf, Germany, before continuing his research at the Max Planck Institute for Radiation Chemistry.

Professor Kupka is the author of many publications in the fields of laser physics, theoretical chemistry, and spectroscopy of organic and anorganic compounds.
