  • The first book on metal clusters and nanoparticles with a balance of theory and applications
  • Sample simulation programs to illustrate the application of molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulation programs to nanoclusters available online

Metallic nanoparticles are promising materials due to their potential applications to a wide array of disciplines ranging from novel building materials to medicine. This book is the first of its kind, focusing solely on the most advanced theoretical techniques to model and simulate metallic clusters and nanoparticles. It includes a summary of the current state of research on metallic nanoparticles, detailed explanations of why and how these tools help experimentalists, and cutting edge contributions from renowned experts in the field from around the globe.
