Editorial Reviews

Review


"This us an excellent book which is intended to be text for a graduate course in condensed matter chemistry and physics. It is extremely well written from the pedagogic and literary points of view."-- Journal of Statistical Physics

Format: Hardcover
When I was asked by JACS to write a review of this book, I expected a good concise overview of Prof. Nitzan's many contributions to the field of quantum chemical dynamics. When I received a >700 page text I knew I had my work as a reviewer cut out for me. This book is a milestone in the field. It lays out the foundations of quantum condensed phase dynamics: quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, liquid theory, condensed matter theory, stochastic processes, and spectroscopy, and then builds upon these to present a clear and precise picture of how chemical physicists

and physical chemists view chemical reactions. Most of the results and ideas are from the recent literature--many from Prof. Nitzan's own work over the past 30 odd years. What I really like is the crystal clear pedagogy and development of the topics presented. I am sure that this will be one of the first books I'll turn in doing my own research.

This is really a very specialized book aimed at researchers and graduate students in physical chemistry and chemical physics. However, I think that the presentation is general enough that it will have broader appeal to other areas of physics.

While aimed a a theoretical audience, this will have appeal for experimental researchers. I highly recommend this as a text for an advanced graduate course or as a convenient reference text for researchers in all areas of chemical dynamics.

I am a Grad starting some reaserch in ET field. This book saved me a lot from struggling to understanding basic conceptions, assumptions, models, and theories. It is written so decently and much easier to be understood compared with those original papers.

This book gets 4 stars because it covers so many things so well. It only doesn't get 5 because as I used it, I always found myself back at about page 4 trying to fit the pieces together. The chapters build very strongly on one another, which is generally a plus except when you're only concerned with a few topics covered. If you are interested in powering through this whole book or have a strong background in quantum and statistical mechanics, you will not be disappointed.

I was a graduate student in quantum chemistry, and I knew nothing about chemical dynamics until I read Abe's book as a postdoc. The book is sensational,
and it is by far the easiest place to learn about Marcus theory and Kramer's theory of solvent-controlled reactions. I come back to this book all the time.
There is no book more important for anyone interested in learning the fundamentals of chemical dynamics in the condensed phase.
