General Features of Collisions and Spectra

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 181)


This lecture will provide a further introduction to the Theory Symposium, describing features that are common to all collision and spectral phenomena of matter in gas phase. Many of these features are also relevant to clusters, viewed as large molecules, as well as to condensed phases of matter. Thus, e.g., ejection of a pho-toelectron from a crystal cell may be viewed as a photoionization of that cell modified by its crystalline environment.
