Nanoplasmonics is one of the most important growth areas of this century. It is part of nano-optics and nanophotonics and deals with oscillations of electrons in metallic nanoparticles and nanostructures. Also, it is a multidisciplinary subject covering atomic, molecular, and solid-state physics, as well as much of chemistry. Nanoplasmonics makes it possible to combine the nanoscale properties of smart devices with their optical frequencies of operation. Nanoplasmonics presents, for the first time, both the physical principles and mathematical descriptions of main nanoplasmonic effects that now are scattered over thousands of research articles. Importantly, it contains many methods, accompanied by diagrams, for fast estimations and calculations of main properties of nanoparticles of very different shapes and their clusters. It also presents the most important applications of nanoplasmonics, including in medicine, nanolasers, electronics, perfect lenses, and invisibility cloaks.

This book is by far the most comprehensive treatment of point and space groups, and their meaning and applications. Its completeness makes it especially useful as a text, since it gives the instructor the flexibility to best fit the class and goals. The instructor, not the author, decides what is in the course. And it is the prime book for reference, as material is much more likely to be found in it than in any other book; it also provides detailed guides to other sources.Much of what is taught is folklore, things everyone knows are true, but (almost?) no one knows why, or has seen proofs, justifications, rationales or explanations. (Why are there 14 Bravais lattices, and why these? Are the reasons geometrical, conventional or both? What determines the Wigner-Seitz cells? How do they affect the number of Bravais lattices? Why are symmetry groups relevant to molecules whose vibrations make them unsymmetrical? And so on). Here these analyses are given, interrelated, and in-depth. The understanding so obtained gives a strong foundation for application and extension. Assumptions and restrictions are not merely made explicit, but also emphasized.In order to provide so much information, details and examples, and ways of helping readers learn and understand, the book contains many topics found nowhere else, or only in obscure articles from the distant past. The treatment is (often completely) different from those elsewhere. At least in the explanations, and usually in many other ways, the book is completely new and fresh. It is designed to inform, educate and make the reader think. It strongly emphasizes understanding.The book can be used at many levels, by many different classes of readers ? from those who merely want brief explanations (perhaps just of terminology), who just want to skim, to those who wish the most thorough understanding.

The purpose of this book is to focus attention on crystallographic research on molecular crystals. In recent years, molecular crystals have ceased to be regarded as mere laboratory curiosities, especially since they have begun to make their appearance in the industrial field. This volume consists of three parts comprising six chapters. Part one is devoted to various aspects of the study of crystals. A knowledge of the three-dimensional structure of molecules is absolutely essential in order to understand the nature of chemical bonds and the mechanism and dynamics of reactions. Chapter one deals with the study of molecular structures by X-ray diffraction. This brings out the results that one may expect from the analysis of crystal structures. Recent results concerning molecular conformation and chemical reactivity are also described. By means of numerous examples, chapter two illustrates the importance of studying organic reactions in the solid state. A number of new reactions are also presented. In the future, crystallography may be used to predict crystal structures. Crystal engineering is of the utmost importance in designing new materials.

Many courses dealing with the material in this text are called "Applications of Group Theory." Emphasizing the central role and primary importance of symmetry in the applications, Symmetry in Bonding and Spectra enables students to handle applications, particularly applications to chemical bonding and spectroscopy. It contains the essential background in vectors and matrices for the applications, along with concise reviews of simple molecular orbital theory, ligand field theory, and treatments of molecular shapes, as well as some quantum mechanics. Solved examples in the text illustrate theory and applications or introduce special points. Extensive problem sets cover the important methods and applications, with the answers in the appendix.

After reviewing background information in the first two chapters, Bowser discusses the bonding models of greatest importance to inorganic chemistry, the primary types of chemical reactions (with examples from both aqueous and non-aqueous solutions), the main group elements (organized to demonstrate interrelationships throughout the periodic table), the transition metals (focusing on the structures, bonding, and reactions of both classical and organometallic complexes), and finally a variety of special topics. Reflecting the current state of the discipline, the text includes many examples from and references to the recent literature.
