The Advances in Chemical Physics series—the cutting edge of research in chemical physicsThe Advances in Chemical Physics series provides the chemical physics and physical chemistry fields with a forum for critical, authoritative evaluations of advances in every area of the discipline. Filled with cutting-edge research reported in a cohesive manner not found elsewhere in the literature, each volume of the Advances in Chemical Physics series offers contributions from internationally renowned chemists and serves as the perfect supplement to any advanced graduate class devoted to the study of chemical physics.
This volume explores:
Hydrogen Bond Topology and Proton Ordering in Ice and Water Clusters (Sherwin J. Singer and Chris Knight)
Molecular Inner-Shell Spectroscopy, Arpis Technique and Its Applications (Eiji Shigemasa and Nobuhiro Kosugi)
Geometric Optimal Control of Simple Quantum Systems: Geometric Optimal Control Theory (Dominique Sugny)
Density Matrix Equation for a Bathed Small System and its Application to Molecular Magnets (D. A. Garanin)
A Fractional Langevin Equation Approach to Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Jennie Cooke)
