This volume is based on a symposium in honor of Professor Ingvar Lindgren. It includes a contribution by Dr. William D. Phillips, who was awarded the 1997 Nobel Prize in the field of physics for work on the development of methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light.
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.
Researchers in quantum chemistry, mathematics, biology and physics. Universities and industrial research and development groups working on biological molecules and new materials.

@from:Praise for the Series @qu:"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 most welcome." @source:--PROCEEDINGS OF THE PHYSICAL SOCIETY @qu:"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." @source:--THE ROYAL INSTITUTE OF CHEMISTRY
