Kinetics in Condensed Matter and at Interfaces (Hardcover)
Kinetics in Condensed Matter and at Surfaces covers the basic concepts of mean force and diffusion, response to external fields and to driving forces, stochastic descriptions, and classical dynamics simulations. It also deals with energy and electron transfer, reactions in liquids and solids, photoinduced kinetics, and kinetics at surfaces. It introduces realistic intermolecular forces and computational methods needed to interpret experiments and predict the outcome of measurements. The two final chapters give introductions to density matrix theory and to relaxation and dissipative phenomena. Chapters provide an introduction to experimental methods where appropriate, and connect theory to applications for specific physical systems to obtain results that can be compared to experimental data.
