This handbook focuses on the foundations of relativistic quantum mechanics and addresses a number of fundamental issues never covered before in a book. For instance: How can many-body theory be combined with quantum electrodynamics? How can quantum electrodynamics be interfaced with relativistic quantum chemistry? What is the most appropriate relativistic many-electron Hamiltonian? How can we achieve relativistic explicit correlation? How can we formulate relativistic properties? – just to name a few. Since relativistic quantum chemistry is an integral component of computational chemistry, this handbook also supplements the “Handbook of Computational Chemistry”. Generally speaking, it aims to establish the ‘big picture’ of relativistic molecular quantum mechanics as the union of quantum electrodynamics and relativistic quantum chemistry. Accordingly, it provides an accessible introduction for readers new to the field, presents advanced methodologies for experts, and discusses possible future perspectives, helping readers understand when/how to apply/develop the methodologies.

This handbook covers new methodological developments and applications of relativistic quantum chemistry. It also pays attention to the foundation of relativistic quantum mechanics and addresses a number of fundamental issues that have not been covered by any book. For instance, what is the appropriate relativistic many-electron Hamiltonian? How to do relativistic explicit/local correlation? How to formulate relativistic properties? How to combine double-group and time-reversal symmetries? How to do QED calculations for molecules? Just to name a few.
This book aims to establish the big picture of relativistic molecular quantum mechanics, ranging from pedagogic introduction for uninitiated readers, advanced methodologies and efficient algorithms for experts, to possible future perspectives, such that the reader knows when/how to apply/develop the methodologies.
This self-contained two-volume book can be regarded as a supplement to the three-volume "Handbook of Computational Chemistry", which contains no relativity at all. It is to be composed of 6 sections with different chapters (will be further expanded), each of which is to be written by the most active experts, who will be invited upon approval of this proposal.
Wenjian Liu obtained his PhD in 1995 at Peking University and then carried out 6-year postdoctoral research in Germany. He was promoted to a full professor and became a Cheung Kong Scholar in 2001. Prof. Liu has been developing relativistic quantum mechanical theories and methods for the chemistry and physics of systems containing heavy elements, including several relativistic many-electron Hamiltonians (effective QED, Q4C, X2C, and sf-X2C+sd-DKHn), several variants of 4C/X2C NMR/NSR theories, relativistic/spin-adapted open-shell/linear-scaling TD-DFT, as well as a general framework for relativistic explicitly correlated methods. He was elected as a member of International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science in 2014, and was elected to be the chairman for the 9th International Conference on Relativistic Effects in Heavy-Element Chemistry and Physics. Prof. Liu has been awarded a number of distinguished prizes, including the annual medal of International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science, the Pople Medal of Asia-Pacific Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists, and the Bessel Research Award of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. He is the Editorial Board Member of Chemical Physics, Molecular Physics, International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, Journal of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry, Interdisciplinary Sciences: Computational Life Sciences, and ActaPhysico-ChimicaSinica.
