Molecular Vibrations: An Algebraic And Nonlinear Approach Hardback
This book focuses on the main idea that highly-excited molecular vibration is a nonlinear, many-body and semiclassical system.
Therefore, many ideas and techniques in nonlinear fields such as chaos, resonance, Lyapunov exponent, etc. can be incorporated into this study. Together with the Lie algebraic coset algorithm, readers are able to approach the topics in a simple arithmetic and realistic way in contrast to the traditional solving of Schroedinger equation.Covering the author's research in over two decades, these works bridge the gaps between molecular vibration and nonlinear sciences, many new characters are introduced for molecular highly-excited vibration from a fresh viewpoint of nonlinearity, especially, the chaos.
Related works of the elementary ideas in this field can be found in the first three chapters for the readers to be familiar with, while the rest of the chapters offer concrete examples with flourishing ideas and results on system dynamics which are not known or neglected by the traditional wave function algorithm.
