The analysis of electronic relaxation processes, especially of radiationless transitions in molecular systems, has evolved rapidly over the last few decades and nowadays plays a central role in almost all investigations of molecular physics and spectroscopy. Advances in lasers have contributed significantly to this evolution, and the book provides a self–contained and unified presentation of this development, with applications to molecular and solid state physics. Primarily intended for graduate students in theoretical physics and chemistry, this is also indispensable reading for those working in molecular physics, physical chemistry and laser physics.

Hans Joachim Kupka earned his PhD in Laser Physics at the Technical University of Wroclaw, and from 1968 he researched at the Institute for Low Temperature and Structure Research at the Polish Academy of Science. In 1977, he joined the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, Germany, before continuing his research at the Max Planck Institute for Radiation Chemistry. Professor Kupka is the author of many publications in the ¿ elds of laser physics, theoretical chemistry, and spectroscopy of organic and anorganic compounds.
