The Advances in Chemical Physics series is dedicated to reviewing new and emerging topics as well as the latest developments in traditional areas of study in the field of chemical physics. Each volume features detailed comprehensive analyses coupled with individual points of view that integrate the many disciplines of science that are needed for a full understanding of chemical physics.

Volume 163 of Advances in Chemical Physics includes contributions from expert authors on:

  • Quantum statistical methods for chemical dynamics
  • Quantum translation–rotation dynamics of light molecule endofullerenes
  • Dynamics of inelastic charge transfer in bridged donor–acceptor systems
  • Adiabatic switching for quasi–classical calculations of zero point energy
  • Iterative eigensolvers for vibrational spectra
  • Quantum scattering and semiclassical transition state theory calculations for polyatomics
  • Quantum dynamics of photodetachment from polyatomic anions
  • Phase space methods for electron dynamics
  • Scaling of phase space and coordinate methods for large quantum dynamics calculations
  • Quantum reactive scattering studies of polyatomic molecule–surface reactions

Reviews published in Advances in Chemical Physics are typically longer than those published in journals, providing the space needed for readers to fully grasp the topic: the fundamentals as well as the latest discoveries, applications, and emerging avenues of research. Extensive cross–referencing enables readers to explore the primary research studies underlying each topic.
