Here, leading scientists present an overview of the most modern experimental and theoretical methods for studying electronic correlations on surfaces, in thin films and in nanostructures. In particular, they describe in detail coincidence techniques for studying many-particle correlations while
critically examining the informational content of such processes from a theoretical point viewpoint. Furthermore, the book considers the current state of incorporating many-body effects into theoretical approaches.
-Auger-electron photoelectron coincidence experiments and theories
-Correlated electron emission from atoms, fullerens, clusters, metals and wide-band gap materials
-Ion coincidence spectroscopies and ion scattering theories from surfaces
-GW and dynamical mean-field approaches
-Many-body effects in electronic and optical response

"...for experimental or theoretical scientists conducting research, although...students interested in research in this area of spectroscopy will find this title extraordinarily valuable."
"Undoubtly, this book with its presentation of frontline research on correlation spectroscopy deserves many readers, both among experimentalists and theoreticians who are engaged in determining the electronic structure of solids."
"The book is well laid-out, the figures are clear and a reasonably extensive index is provided...This monograph will be of use to researchers in this field, and may find use as a text for advanced graduate courses in electronic structure. As independent particle physics becomes better understood, the need to understand and properly treat many electron phenomena becomes increasingly important. This monograph is a significant and timely contribution to that end."
