About this book

The field of cluster sciences is currently attracting considerable interest, not only from a fundamental viewpoint but also in relation to future applications to electronic, optical and magnetic devices. Synthesizing specific clusters as a component of useful nanostructures or controlling them as an assembly of nanocomposites is the ultimate aim. In order to understand how to synthesize individual clusters or to investigate properties such as chemical reaction, structural stability, response to external fields, aggregation and phase transitions, a variety of first-principles and empirical calculations and related computer simulations have been performed alongside numerous experiments. This book compiles and collates recent theoretical and experimental advances in the field and demonstrates how the harmony between theory and experiment is contributing to the continuing rapid progress. It will be of interest not only to researchers, but also to students and newcomers seeking a review of the present status.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"The book starts with a brief introduction written by the editors. They outlined important contributions of cluster science to basic science and the role of cluster science in applications, the crucial role of cluster in the progress of nanotechnology. The book consists of four parts: ‘Metallic Clusters’, ‘Organic Molecules’, ‘Fullerenes and Nanotubes’, ‘Theory and Computer Simulation’. … This book will be useful for researchers and graduated students working in the field of cluster science and in related subjects." (K. M. Salikhov, Applied Magnetic Resonance, Vol. 24 (2), 2003)

"The editors of this book have an outstanding track record in the fields of cluster and nanoparticle physics. Their insight into the field can be gleaned from the very well written introductory chapter, which briefly outlines the relevance and importance of each the subsequent chapters. … it is the theoretical chapters that make this book valuable, giving examples of a wide range of modern numerical modelling approaches. … should find a place in the library of someone interested in the simulation of nanostructures." (John Dell, The Physicist, Vol. 39 (3), 2002)
