Providing the chemical physics field with a forum for critical, authoritative evaluations in every area of the discipline, the latest volume of Advances in Chemical Physics continues to provide significant, up-to-date chapters written by internationally recognized researchers.

This volume is essentially devoted to helping the reader obtain general information about a wide variety of topics in chemical physics. Advances in Chemical Physics, Volume 117 includes chapters addressing laser photoelectron spectroscopy, nonadiabatic transitions due to curve crossings, multidimensional raman spectroscopy, birefringence and dielectric relaxation in strong electric fields, and crossover formulae for Kramers Theory of thermally activated escape rates.

Laser Photoelectron Spectroscopy: Spectroscopy and Dynamics of Excited States in Small and Medium-Sized Molecules (C. De Lange).

Nonadiabatic Transitions Due to Curve Crossings: Complete Solutions of the Landau-Zener-Stueckelberg Problems and Their Applications (C. Zhu, et al.).

Multidimensional Raman Spectroscopy (J. Fourkas).

Birefringence and Dielectric Relaxation in Strong Electric Fields (J. Déjardin, et al.).

Crossover Formulas in the Kramers Theory of Thermally Activated Escape Rates -- Application to Spin Systems (W. Coffey, et al.).
