Om Nonadiabatic Transition
Nonadiabatic transition is a highly multidisciplinary concept and phenomenon, constituting a fundamental mechanism of state and phase changes in various dynamical processes of physics, chemistry and biology, such as molecular dynamics, energy relaxation, chemical reaction, and electron and proton transfer. Control of molecular processes by laser fields is also an example of time- dependent nonadiabatic transition.In this new edition, the original chapters are updated to facilitate enhanced understanding of the concept and applications. Three new chapters — comprehension of nonadiabatic chemical dynamics, control of chemical dynamics, and manifestation of molecular functions — are also added.Contents:Introduction: What is “Nonadiabatic Transition”?Multi-DisciplinarityHistorical Survey of Theoretical StudiesBackground MathematicsBasic Two-State Theory for Time-Independent ProcessesBasic Two-State Theory for Time-Dependent ProcessesTwo-State ProblemsEffects of Coupling to Phonons and Quantum DevicesMulti-Channel ProblemsMulti-Dimensional ProblemsComplete Reflection and Bound States in the ContinuumNew Mechanism of Molecular SwitchingControl of Nonadiabatic Processes by an External FieldComprehension of Nonadiabatic Chemical DynamicsControl of Chemical DynamicsManifestation of Molecular FunctionsConclusions: Future PerspectivesReadership: Graduate Students and researchers in molecular science, physical chemistry, chemical dynamics, atomic and molecular physics, theoretical chemistry and physics, condensed matter and statistical physics, organic- and biochemistry.
