Description

This 3rd edition has been expanded and updated to account for recent developments, while new illustrative examples as well as an enlarged reference list have also been added. It naturally retains the successful concept of its predecessors in presenting a unified perspective on molecular charge and energy transfer processes, thus bridging the regimes of coherent and dissipative dynamics, and establishing a connection between classic rate theories and modern treatments of ultrafast phenomena.

Among the new topics are:
- Time-dependent density functional theory
- Heterogeneous electron transfer, e.g. between molecules and metal or semiconductor surfaces
- Current flows through a single molecule.

While serving as an introduction for graduate students and researchers, this is equally must-have reading for theoreticians and experimentalists, as well as an aid to interpreting experimental data and accessing the original literature.

"A few months after the first edition of May and Kuehn's book was released, I met a Danish colleague at a conference in Montreux (on Lake Geneva). He had spent the weekend reading the book in his hotel room, despite the beautiful weather and nice sightseeing! This anecdote illustrates the sucess met by the first edition, and if you liked it, then you will like the second edition even more! ... the book provides a didactic and pedagogic presentation of molecular processes."
