Relativistic Quantum Theory of Atoms and Molecules: Theory and Computation - Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics 40 (Hardback)Ian P. Grant (author)
- We can order this
This book is intended for physicists and chemists who need to understand the theory of atomic and molecular structure and processes, and who wish to apply the theory to practical problems. As far as practicable, the book provides a self-contained account of the theory of relativistic atomic and molecular structure, based on the accepted formalism of bound-state Quantum Electrodynamics. The author was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1992.

From the reviews:
"Relativistic Quantum Theory of Atoms and Molecules is a book that should be on the desk of every atomic-physics student and research scientist. Written by a master of the field, it contains a wealth of information about relativistic atomic and molecular structures." (Walter Johnson, Physics Today, January, 2008)
"In the text, the presentation is usually well balanced, with words and formulas in an appropriate ratio; explanations are frequently supplemented by some sentences that aid the readers' orientation and motivation. Although the book is particularly tailored towards applications within atomic and molecular theory, several chapters may also be useful for readers whose interests embrace more general aspects of relativistic quantum mechanics. ... In summary, Grant's monograph is more than just a `valuable addition' to the literature on relativistic atomic and molecular theory." (H. Hogreve, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 c)
