Metal Clusters Edited by Walter Ekardt Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin, Germany The current state of knowledge on these aggregated metal atoms, including both the fundamental principles and recent results, is presented here in a comprehensive form. Emphasis is placed on the theory linking it to the latest experimental results. Topics covered include: The Jellium Model; The Quantum Chemical Approach; Density Functional Theory and Car-Parrinello Molecular Dynamics; Dissociation, Fragmentation and Fission; Optical and Thermal Properties of Sodium Clusters; and Magnetic Properties of Transition Metal Clusters. Metal Clusters is set to become the standard reference work in this mature field and will be invaluable for all researchers in a broad range of disciplines from theoretical chemistry to condensed matter physics and materials science.
Application of the Jellium Model and its Refinements to the Study of the Electronic Properties of Metal Clusters (W. Ekardt, et al. ).

The Quantum-Chemical Approach (V. Bonai-Kouteck?, et al. ).
