This publication includes contributions to the 172. WE-Heraeus-Seminar “Atoms and Molecules in powerful exterior Fields,” which came about April 7–11 1997 on the Phys- zentrum undesirable Honnef (Germany). The designation “strong fields” applies to exterior static magnetic, and/or electrical fields which are sufficiently severe to reason changes within the atomic or molecular str- ture and dynamics. the explicit issues taken care of are the habit and homes of atoms in robust static fields, the basic elements and digital constitution of molecules in robust magnetic fields, the dynamics and features of chaos in hugely excited R- berg atoms in exterior fields, subject within the surroundings of astrophysical items (white dwarfs, neutron stars), and quantum nanostructures in robust magnetic fields. it's visible that the elaboration of the corresponding homes in those regimes reasons the best problems, and is incomplete even this day. Present-day know-how has made it attainable for lots of study teams to check the habit of topic in powerful exterior fields, either experimentally and theore- cally, the place the word “experimentally” comprises the astronomical observations. - derstanding those platforms calls for the advance of recent theories and robust computational innovations. Interdisciplinary collaborations could be important and helpful in constructing extra effective ways to comprehend those very important platforms. as a result the assumption used to be to collect humans from diversified fields like atomic and molecular physics, theoretical chemistry, astrophysics and all these colleagues drawn to features of few-body structures in exterior fields.

For undergraduate physics scholars or for nuclear engineers.
The possibilities for doing scattering experiments at synchrotron and neutron amenities have grown speedily lately and are set to proceed to take action into the foreseeable destiny. this article presents a simple figuring out of the way those options let the constitution and dynamics of fabrics to be studied on the atomic and molecular point.
This publication is devoted to Professor Leonid V Keldysh. His terrific contributions to condensed topic physics comprise the Franz-Keldysh impression, an electron-hole liquid, the nonequilibrium (Keldysh) diagram method, Bose-Einstein condensation (of excitons) and a ``metal-dielectric'' transition, acoustically-induced superlattices, multi-photon transitions and impression ionization in solids.
This booklet presents a bridge among the fundamental ideas of physics discovered as an undergraduate and the abilities and data required for complex examine and learn within the fascinating box of atomic physics. The textual content is geared up in a special and flexible structure --- as a suite of difficulties, tricks, targeted recommendations, and in-depth tutorials.
