Advances in Quantum Chemistry publishes articles and invited reviews by leading international researchers in quantum chemistry. Quantum chemistry deals particularly with the electronic structure of atoms, molecules, and crystalline matter and describes it in terms of electron wave patterns. It uses physical and chemical insight, sophisticated mathematics, and high-speed computers to solve the wave equations and achieve its results. Advances highlights these important, interdisciplinary developments.

Volume 37 includes proceedings of the 1998 Korea-Japan DV-Xa Joint Symposium. Emphasis is placed on atomic spectroscopy and material science, including the computation of electronic states of materials.


Researchers in quantum chemistry, applied mathematics, biology and physics; universities and industrial research and development groups working on biological molecules and new materials, such as semiconductor chips, polymers, and alloys.

John Sabin

I was born in Springfield, Mass, and Educated at Williams College (BA) and the University of New Hampshire (PhD). Following that, I was a postdoctoral at Uppsala University in Sweden, and at Northwestern University in Evanston. For the past four decades, I have worked in the Quantum Theory Project, Department of Physics, at the University of Florida. My interests have always been in the theory of molecular electronic structure. More recently, I have been working on the interaction of fast particles, mostly protons and alpha particles, with proto-biological molecules, in terms of the transfer of energy from the projectile to the molecular target, and the outcome of that energy transfer. Such energy transfer is primarily electronic, and the initial electronic excitation results in target electronic and vibrational excitation, ionization, fragmentation, charge exchange, and other processes. The study of these processes, known as stopping power, has applications in fields from microelectronics to tumor therapy. The investigations are interesting and continue.

Erkki Brandas

Erkki Brändas was born in Tampere, Finland in July1940 and was, as a Finnish war child, transported to Sweden in February 1942, finally adopted by his Swedish parents and given Swedish citizenship in 1947. He received his FL (PhD) in 1969 and Doctor of Philosophy (habilitation) in 1972, both at Uppsala University. Except for guest professorships in USA, Germany, Israel, he spent his professional career in Uppsala employed as Assistant- Associate- and Full Professor from 1975 until retirement in 2007. In addition to serving as chairman of the department of Quantum Chemistry, he was appointed Executive Director of the Uppsala Graduate School Advanced Instrumentation and Measurement supervising the doctoral education of 35 PhD’s from 1997-2007. He has served on various international scientific and editorial boards, e.g. Wiley, Elsevier and Springer including the service as Editor-in-Chief for the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, Series Editor of the Advances in Quantum Chemistry. He is the current President of the International Society for Theoretical Chemical Physics, since 15 years, chairing a variety of international congresses and other numerous meetings, schools and workshops. He has published over 260 articles and edited more than 50 books on fundamental theoretical chemical physics from research on atoms, molecules and solid-state physics to complex enough systems in biology - from the microscopic realm to the cosmological rank.

Quotes and reviews

@qu:"Quantum chemistry has emerged as a subject in it own right. The appearance of a review publication which surveys recent achievements in the field is therefore very appropriate and, when it has the quality of this volume, is most welcome."
@qu:"The juxtaposition of the oldest of quantum chemical studies, atomic structure, and one of the newest, quantum biology, highlights the importance of quantum theory in modern chemistry. Thus, having first opened the book in search of a particular article, the reader is stimulated to delve into fields of which he has but a superficial knowledge. In this way the book can be instrumental in broadening the interests and background of those who turn to it."
