This two–volume work covers ultrafast structural and electronic dynamics of elementary processes at solid surfaces and interfaces, presenting the current status of this booming field of research. Providing valuable introductory information and basic concepts for newcomers to this field, it discusses femtosecond and attosecond time–resolved methods, as well as frequency domain techniques. The whole is rounded off by a look at future developments.

From the contents:

I. Quasiparticle Dynamics
II. Collective Excitations
III. Heterogeneous Electron Transfer
IV. Photo–induced Modification of Materials and Femtochemistry
V. Recent Developments and Future Directions
