... the author has succeeded well in his intention to write an introduction to semiclassical mechanics, and has definitely filled a market gap between undergraduate quantum mechanics and research on quantum chaos. His molecular examples are illuminating, and of specific interest to molecular physicists and chemists. However, his emphasis on the fundamentals of semiclassical mechanics will make 'Semiclassical Mechanics with Molecular Applications' profitable reading for a much wider audience. 04/02/1993 * Dr P.

M.S. Child is eminently qualified to write an authoritative text on this subject and that is exactly what he has done. The book is written in a clear, lucid style, with interesting, well-chosen examples and problems throughout, providing a structured overview of the subject and giving just the right amount of detail. This book will undoubtedly become a standard text for all who wish to pursue research using the tools of semiclassical mechanics. * G. B. Bacskay, University of Sydney, Chemistry in Australia *
