Molecular Quantum Electrodynamics: Long-Range Intermolecular Interactions
The first such book devoted exclusively to the MQED theory of long-range intermolecular forces, this resource gives the first presentation of the second quantized Maxwell field formulation of the theory. The coverage includes recently developed non-perturbative approaches for treating a variety of intermolecular interactions. It also provides a comprehensive treatment of discriminatory forces and their subsequent modification by a radiation field. This provides an essential resource for theoretical and physical chemists; atomic, molecular, and optical physicists; as well as biophysicists, materials scientists, and nanochemists.
