Title  Introduction to the Physics of Matter : Basic atomic, molecular, and solidstate physics 
Author(s)  by Nicola Manini 
Description  XI, 276 p. 165 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an uptodate, compact presentation of basic topics in the physics of matter, from atoms to molecules to solids, including elements of statistical mechanics. The adiabatic separation of the motion of electrons and nuclei in matter and its spectroscopic implications are outlined for molecules and recalled regularly in the study of the dynamics of gases and solids. Numerous experiments are described and more than 160 figures give a clear visual impression of the main concepts. Sufficient detail of mathematical derivations is provided to enable students to follow easily. The focus is on presentday understanding and especially on phenomena fitting various independentparticle models. The historical development of this understanding, and phenomena such as magnetism and superconductivity, where interparticle interactions and nonadiabatic effects play a crucial role, are mostly omitted. A final outlook section stimulates the curiosity of the reader to pursue the study of such advanced topics in graduate courses

Title  Theory of nonlinear propagation of high harmonics generated in a gaseous medium 
Author(s)  Cheng Jin 
Description  1 online resource (xiv, 159 pages) : illustrations (some color) 
Abstract Note  Theory of Nonlinear Propagation of High Harmonics Generated in a Gaseous Medium establishes the theoretical tools to study HighOrder Harmonic Generation (HHG) by intense ultrafast infrared lasers in atoms and molecules. The macroscopic propagation of both laser and highharmonic fields is taken into account by solving Maxwell's wave equations, while the singleatom or singlemolecule response is treated with a quantitative rescattering theory by solving the timedependent Schrd inger equation. This book demonstrates for the first time that observed experimental HHG spectra of atoms and molecules can be accurately reproduced theoretically when precise experimental conditions are known. The macroscopic HHG can be expressed as a product of a macroscopic wave packet and a photorecombination cross section, where the former depends on laser and experimental conditions while the latter is the property of target atoms or molecules. The factorization makes it possible to retrieve microscopically atomic or molecular structure information from the measured macroscopic HHG spectra. This book also investigates other important issues about HHG, such as contributions from multiple molecular orbitals, the minimum in the HHG spectrum, the spatial mode of laser beams, and the generation of an isolated attosecond pulse. Additionally, this book presents the photoelectron angular distribution of aligned molecules ionized by the HHG light
