9780486694375: Molecular Collision Theory (Dover Books on Chemistry)

This high-level monograph offers an excellent introduction to the theory required for interpretation of an increasingly sophisticated range of molecular scattering experiments. There are five helpful appendixes dealing with continuum wavefunctions, Green's functions, semi-classical connection formulae, curve-crossing in the momentum representation, and elements of classical mechanics.
The contents of this volume have been chosen to emphasize the quantum mechanical and semi-classical nature of collision events, with little attention given to purely classical behavior. The treatment is essentially analytical. Some knowledge of the quantum mechanics of bound states is assumed.

Product Description:

This high-level, analytical treatment introduces the theory required for interpretation of an increasingly sophisticated range of molecular scattering experiments. Topics include classical scattering by a central force, quantum scattering by a central force, elastic scattering phase shifts, semi-classical elastic scattering, and more. Includes appendixes and references.

About the Author:

Mark Child is a distinguished theoretical chemist and internationally recognised authority on quantum defect theory and its applications to molecular systems. He was Coulson Professor of Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Oxford, a post from which he recently retired.
