Semiclassical mechanics relates Newton's classical theory to modern quantum mechanics in a manner designed for the interpretation of the most recent experimental evidence. The theory is physically intuitive and computationally accurate, and is particularly powerful for large quantum numbers - hence it has special reference to atomic, nuclear, and molecular physics. It also proves to be remarkably accurate even for the lowest quantum states. This book gives a comprehensive account of the application of the theory to molecular systems, with particular attention paid to the problems of non-separability. Spectroscopy is addressed in addition to collision theory. Although it is primarily a research monograph, the inclusion of problems at the end of each chapter makes this book equally applicable as a graduate text.

'Mark Child of the University of Oxford, has written a valuable book to guide us through the maze of the recent literature. ... an excellent introduction to its subject, and is warmly recommended for its coverage of the many facets of semi-classical theory. J. Chem. Soc. Faraday Trans. 'the author has succeeded well in his intention to write an introduction to semiclassical mechanics, and has definitely filled a market gap between undergraduate quantum mechanics and research on quantum chaos. His molecular examples are illuminating, and of specific interest to molecular physicists and chemists. However, his emphasis on the fundamentals of semiclassical mechanics will make Semiclassical Mechanics with Molecular Applications profitable reading for a much wider audience.' Dr P.T. Greenland, AEA Technology, Harwell, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 33, No. 3 'M.S. Child is eminently qualified to write an authoritative text on this subject and that is exactly what he has done. The book is written in a clear, lucid style, with interesting, well-chosen examples and problems throughout, providing a structured overview of the subject and giving just the right amount of detail. This book will undoubtedly become a standard text for all who wish to pursue research using the tools of semiclassical mechanics.' G.B. Bacskay, University of Sydney, Chemistry in Australia, June 1993
