About this book

Introduction

I I These Lecture Notes are intended as an introduction to the theoretical formulation and computational aspects of the molecular energy transfer processes which take place in an increasingly sophisticated range of molecular scattering experiments. They are directed to chemistry graduate students and emphasize the quantum mechanical approach, with little or no attention to classical and semi­ classical treatments or to formal presentations. Several Sections of the first Chapters are based on lectures given at the Graduate School of Physics of the University of Genoa a few years ago and I thank the students for their sense of duty in following to the end all those no­ tation-filled blackboards and transparencies. The kind patience of my wife Carolyn in reading the whole manuscript and improving its form is gratefully acknowledged. Franco A.
