By P. Schmelcher, W. Schweizer

This e-book includes contributions to the 172. WE-Heraeus-Seminar “Atoms and Molecules in powerful exterior Fields,” which happened April 7–11 1997 on the Phys- zentrum undesirable Honnef (Germany). The designation “strong fields” applies to exterior static magnetic, and/or electrical fields which are sufficiently extreme to reason changes within the atomic or molecular str- ture and dynamics. the categorical subject matters taken care of are the habit and homes of atoms in powerful static fields, the basic points and digital constitution of molecules in robust magnetic fields, the dynamics and features of chaos in hugely excited R- berg atoms in exterior fields, topic within the surroundings of astrophysical gadgets (white dwarfs, neutron stars), and quantum nanostructures in powerful magnetic fields. it really is seen that the elaboration of the corresponding homes in those regimes reasons the best problems, and is incomplete even at the present time. Present-day know-how has made it attainable for plenty of learn teams to review the habit of subject in robust exterior fields, either experimentally and theore- cally, the place the word “experimentally” contains the astronomical observations. - derstanding those platforms calls for the improvement of recent theories and strong computational innovations. Interdisciplinary collaborations can be precious and priceless in constructing extra effective how you can comprehend those very important platforms. consequently the belief was once to collect humans from diversified fields like atomic and molecular physics, theoretical chemistry, astrophysics and all these colleagues attracted to features of few-body structures in exterior fields.

High-Energy Ion-Atom Collisions

Those complaints provide primary details at the collision mechanisms of ions and atoms at rather excessive energies and on their hugely excited atomic states. the data derived from such reports can frequently be utilized in different fields equivalent to fabric research, dosimetry, the research of the higher surroundings and regulated fusion.

Problems and Solutions on Atomic, Nuclear and Particle Physics

This booklet, a part of the seven-volume sequence significant American Universities PhD Qualifying Questions and suggestions includes precise ideas to 483 questions/problems on atomic, molecular, nuclear and particle physics, in addition to experimental technique. the issues are of a typical acceptable to complicated undergraduate and graduate syllabi, and mix jointly goals — knowing of actual rules and useful program.

The Chemical Physics of Ice (Cambridge Monographs on Physics)

Initially released in 1970, this booklet offers a finished account of the homes of ice, the connections among them and how during which they derive from the constitution of the water molecule and the small mass of the proton. The homes are mentioned when it comes to quantum mechanics and sturdy kingdom concept with emphasis on actual rules instead of on theoretical versions.

Icons and Symmetries

Here's a lucid advent to the tips of symmetry as they're so effectively utilized in the fields of physics, chemistry and different actual sciences. utilizing merely straightforward arithmetic, the writer discusses the delicate dating among actual items, versions, and icons, and explains a number of the so-called symmetry paradoxes.

The integration should be performed with allowance for the gravitational bending of photon trajectories (e. , 1995). , 1995; Zavlin and Pavlov, 1997b). An important result of the atmosphere fits is that they yield effective temperatures considerably lower than those obtained from the blackbody fits, usually below the temperatures predicted by the standard NS cooling models (see Introduction). However, in many cases both the blackbody and atmosphere models give statistically acceptable fits because of the narrowness of the X-ray energy range and poor spectral resolution of current X-ray detectors.

12 white dwarf radii along and perpendicular to the magnetic axis, respectively, and a dipole field strength of 800 T. The inclination of the rotation axis is 20° and the colatitude 50°. It is obvious especially from the polarization spectrum that there are clear deviations between the radiative transfer model and observation. They might be caused in the first place by the Holtsmark distribution, not valid for magnetic fields, and secondly by the approximation for the bound-free opacities. In Fig.
