Structure and Properties of Clusters: From a Few Atoms to Nanoparticlesby George Maroulis
Synopses & Reviews
This volume on Clusters brings together contributions from a large number of specialists. A central element for all contributions is the use of advanced computational methodologies and their application to various aspects of structure, reactivity and properties of clusters. The size of clusters varies from a few atoms to nanoparticles. Special emphasis is given to bringing forth new insights on the structure and properties of these systems with an eye towards potential applications in Materials Science. Overal, the volume presents to the readers an amazing wealth of new results. Particular subjects include water clusters, Silicon, Iron, Nickel and Gold clusters, carbon-titanium microclusters and nanoparticles, fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, chiral carbon nanotubes, boron nanoclusters and more.
Book News Annotation:
This collection brings together important studies on the structure and properties of clusters, with varying sizes. Research has been very intense in this field, and the result has been new and novel knowledge with important commercial applications, including those involving large-scale calculations. Paper topics here include positional isotope effects for the water tetramer, dynamic breaking and reporting of finite water chains inside carbon nanotubes, a density functional study of Beryllium clusters, interaction of nitric oxide and nitrous oxide dimer with silver clusters, Li and Be clusters, enhancements of fullerene stability from excited electronic states and recent advances in the fusion and fission of atomic clusters.
