Surface science grew as an interdisciplinary research area over the last decades, mostly because of new experimental technologies (ultra-high vacuum, for instance), as well as because of a novel paradigm, the `surface science' approach. The book describes the second transformation which is now taking place pushed by the availability of powerful quantum-mechanical theoretical methods implemented numerically. In the book, experiment and theory progress hand in hand with an unprecedented degree of accuracy and control. The book presents how modern surface science targets the atomic-level understanding of physical and chemical processes at surfaces, with particular emphasis on dynamical aspects. This book is a reference in the field.

From the book reviews:
"The volume collects the work carried out by many among the best groups and authors in the field, including the excellent contributions from the editors' home-institutions, the CONICET-UNR at Rosario, Argentina and, last but not least, the Centro de Fisica de Materiales of CSIC, and the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) of the Basque Country University at San Sebastian. This important book is a must for all surface science laboratories." (G. Benedek, Il Nuovo Saggiatore, en.sif.it, Vol. 31 (1-2), 2015)
