Relations Among Various Diffusion Coefficients — Diffusion and Density Autocorrelation Functions

  • Robert Gomer
Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 86)


In this chapter we discuss the principal diffusion coefficients measured in surface mobility experiments, describe but do not derive in detail some relations among them, and finally discuss density autocorrelation functions.
