Advances in Quantum Chemistry

Recent Advances in Computational Quantum Chemistry

Advances in Quantum Chemistry publishes surveys of current developments in the rapidly developing field of quantum chemistry--a field that falls between the historically established areas of mathematics, physics,chemistry, and biology. With invited reviews written by leading international researchers, each presenting new results, this quality serial provides a single vehicle for following progress in this interdisciplinary area. "Volume 28 collects papers written in honor of Geerd H.F. Diercksen. Diercksen is a pioneer in the field of quantum mechanics whose research includes studies of the structure and stability of hydrogen-bonded and Van der Waals dimers and small clusters, thevibrational and rotational spectra of diatomic and triatomic molecules, on static electric properties in solutions and of molecules absorbed on surfaces. His results are essential in molecular and atomic physics, in astrophysics, and in biochemistry.

Audience
Researchers in quantum chemistry, mathematics, biology, and physics. Universities and industrial research and development groups working on biological molecules and new materials (e.g. semiconductor chips, polymers, and alloys). Companies such as Intel, IBM, Bell Labs, and Genentech.

Reviews

  • "Quantum chemistry has emerged as a subject in its own right. The appearance of a review publication which surveys recent achievements in the field is therefore very appropriate and, when it has the quality of this volume, is mostwelcome."
    --PROCEEDINGS OF THE PHYSICAL SOCIETY


    "The juxtaposition of the oldest of quantum chemical studies, atomic structure, and one of the newest, quantum biology, highlights the importance of quantum theory in modern chemistry. Thus, having first opened the book in search of a particular article,the reader is stimulated to delve into fields of which he has but a superficial knowledge. In this way the book can be instrumental in broadening the interests and background of those who turn to it."
