Description

Advances in Quantum Chemistry presents surveys of current developments in this rapidly developing field that falls between the historically established areas of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology. With invited reviews written by leading international researchers, each presenting new results, it provides a single vehicle for following progress in this interdisciplinary area.

Readership

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.

Quotes and reviews

"Quantum chemistry has emerged as a subject in its 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."
—PROCEEDINGS OF THE PHYSICAL SOCIETY

"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."
