Resonance Energy Transfer

The resonance transfer of energy between molecules, or between sites within a large molecule, plays a central role in many areas of modern chemistry and physics. In biophysics, for example, this process defines the migration of excitation energy within photosynthetic systems (commonly the Frster mechanism). Another important area is in crystals, laser and other laser materials.

Resonance Energy Transfer contains a large amount of cutting-edge research which has never before appeared in book form. It is the first comprehensive modern survey of the field, offering a broad, yet detailed view of the mechanisms of energy transfer. The broad range of applications of fluorescence and fluorescence energy transfer to studies in molecular biology and biotechnology ensures that resonance energy transfer will be a vital component of the new science and technology of the next millenium.

This book is written for those working with materials, both experimentally and theoretically, as well as for biophysicists and biochemists interested in studying protein structure and dynamics.

Widely regarded as the standard text in its field, Theory of Simple Liquids gives an advanced but self-contained account of liquid state theory within the unifying framework provided by classical statistical mechanics. The structure of this revised and updated Fourth Edition is similar to that of the previous one but there are significant shifts in emphasis and much new material has been added.

Major changes and Key Features in content include:

  • Expansion of existing sections on simulation methods, liquid-vapour coexistence, the hierarchical reference theory of criticality, and the dynamics of super-cooled liquids.
  • New sections on binary fluid mixtures, surface tension, wetting, the asymptotic decay of pair correlations, fluids in porous media, the thermodynamics of glasses, and fluid flow at solid surfaces.
  • An entirely new chapter on applications to 'soft matter' of a combination of liquid state theory and coarse graining strategies, with sections on polymer solutions and polymer melts, colloidal dispersions, colloid-polymer mixtures, lyotropic liquid crystals, colloidal dynamics, and on clustering and gelation.

Quantum behavior encompasses a large fraction of modern science and technology, including the laws of chemistry and the properties of crystals, semiconductors, and superfluids. This graduate-level text presents the basic principles of quantum mechanics using modern mathematical techniques and theoretical concepts, such as hermitian operators, Hilbert space, Dirac notation, and ladder operators. The first two chapters serve as an introduction to quantum theory with a discussion of wave motion and Schrödinger's wave mechanics. Coverage then details the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics. Throughout, basic theory is clearly illustrated and applied to the harmonic oscillator, angular momentum, the hydrogen atom, the variation method, perturbation theory, and nuclear motion. This volume is the ideal textbook for beginning graduate students in chemistry, chemical physics, molecular physics and materials science.

Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: Transport (Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics) Lowest new price: $87.08
Lowest used price: $81.00
List price: $139.00
Author: Mario Capitelli
Brand: Mario Capitelli

Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: Transport develops basic and advanced concepts of plasma transport to the modern treatment of the Chapman-Enskog method for the solution of the Boltzmann transport equation.

The book invites the reader to consider actual problems of the transport of thermal plasmas with particular attention to the derivation of diffusion- and viscosity-type transport cross sections, stressing the role of resonant charge-exchange processes in affecting the diffusion-type collision calculation of viscosity-type collision integrals.

A wide range of topics is then discussed including (1) the effect of non-equilibrium vibrational distributions on the transport of vibrational energy, (2) the role of electronically excited states in the transport properties of thermal plasmas, (3) the dependence of transport properties on the multitude of Saha equations for multi-temperature plasmas, and (4) the effect of the magnetic field on transport properties.

Throughout the book, worked examples are provided to clarify concepts and mathematical approaches.

This book is the second of a series of three published by the Bari group on fundamental aspects of plasma chemical physics. The first book, Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: Thermodynamics, is dedicated to plasma thermodynamics; and the third, Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: Kinetics, deals with plasma kinetics.

Introduction to Magnetic Resonance

Introduction to Magnetic Resonance Lowest new price: $135.17
Lowest used price: $21.99
Author: Alan Carrington

Intended as an introduction to magnetic resonance, but equally useful for physics majors, this book is designed primarily for first-year chemistry graduate students and advanced senior undergraduates. The chief claim is to present, in a clear and concise manner, the most important principles and applications of the two kinds of magnetic resonance: nuclear magnetic resonance (N.M.R.) and electron spin resonance (E.S.R.), both of which depend upon the same fundamental principles. The first text to treat both topics in a single volume, Introduction to Magnetic Resonance also contains the first up-to-date account of triplet state E.S.R. work. Difficult points are not evaded; theory is presented simply. Some knowledge of quantum mechanics and matrix algebra is presupposed; the mathematics is kept as simple as possible. Methods are illustrated with key examples form current research. A well-balanced and coherent account of the subject.

THEORY AND APPLICATION OF QUANTUM MOLECULAR DYNAMICS

THEORY AND APPLICATION OF QUANTUM MOLECULAR DYNAMICS Lowest new price: $95.33
Lowest used price: $109.73
List price: $102.00
Author: John Zeng Hui Zhang

This book provides a detailed presentation of modern quantum theories for treating the reaction dynamics of small molecular systems. Its main focus is on the recent development of successful quantum dynamics theories and computational methods for studying the molecular reactive scattering process, with specific applications given in detail for a number of benchmark chemical reaction systems in the gas phase and the gas surface. In contrast to traditional books on collision in physics focusing on abstract theory for nonreactive scattering, this book deals with both the development and the application of the modern reactive or rearrangement scattering theory, and is written in a fashion in which the development of the reactive scattering theory is closely coupled with its computational aspects for practical applications for realistic molecular reactions. The volume includes such topics as methods for calculating rovibrational states of molecules, fundamental quantum theory for scattering (nonreactive and reactive), modern time-independent computational methods for reactive scattering, general time-dependent wave packet methods for reactive scattering, dynamics theory of chemical reactions, dynamics of molecular fragmentation, semiclassical description of quantum mechanics, and also some useful appendices.

The book is intended for the reader to not only understand the molecular reaction dynamics from the fundamental scattering theory, but also utilize the provided computational methodologies in their practical applications. It should benefit graduate students and researchers in the field of chemical physics.

Principles of Mössbauer Spectroscopy (Studies in Chemical Physics) Lowest new price: $71.03

Author: T. C. Gibb
Brand: T C Gibb

The emergence of M6ssbauer spectroscopy as an important experi­ mental technique for the study of solids has resulted in a wide range of applications in chemistry, physics, metallurgy and biophysics. This book is intended to summarize the elementary principles of the technique at a level appropriate to the advanced student or experienced chemist requiring a moderately comprehensive but basically non-mathematical introduction. Thus the major part of the book is concerned with the practical applications of Mossbauer spectroscopy, using carefully selected examples to illustrate the concepts. The references cited and the bibliography are intended to provide a bridge to the main literature for those who subseouent­ ly require a deeper knowledge. The text is complementary to the longer research monograph, 'Mossbauer Spectroscopy', which was written a few years ago in co-authorship with Professor N.N. Greenwood, and to whom I am deeply indebted for reading the preliminary draft of the present volume. I also wish to thank my many colleagues over the past ten years, and in particular Dr. R. Greatrex, for the many stimu­ lating discussions which we have had together. However my greatest debt is to my wife, who not only had to tolerate my eccen­ tricities during the gestation period, but being a chemist herself was also able to provide much useful criticism of the penultirna te draft.
