Advances in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics, established in 1965, continues its tradition of excellence with Volume 32, published in honor of Founding Editor Sir David Bates upon his retirement as editorof the series. This volume presents reviews of topics related to the applications of atomic and molecular physics to atmospheric physics and astrophysics.


Atomic, molecular, and optical physicists, cosmologists, astrophysicists, astronomers, and upper-level graduate students in these fields.
