About this Textbook

This book provides advanced undergraduate and graduate students with an overview of the fundamentals of cold and ultracold chemistry. Beginning with definitions of what cold and ultracold temperatures mean in chemistry, the book then takes the student through the essentials of scattering theory (classical and quantum mechanical), light-matter interaction, reaction dynamics and Rydberg physics. The author aims to show the reader the richness of the topic while motivating students to understand the fundamentals of these intriguing reactions and underlying connecting relationships. Including material which was previously only found in specialized review articles, this book provides students working in the fields of ultracold gases, chemical physics and physical chemistry with the tools they need to immerse themselves in the realm of cold and ultracold chemistry. This book opens up the exciting chemical laws which govern chemistry at low temperatures to the next generation of researchers.

About the authors

Jesús Pérez Ríos is a group leader in the Department of Molecular Physics at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin. He obtained his Ph.D in physics in 2012 from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. After this he was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the Ecole Normale Superieure to work in the Laboratoire Aimé Cotton in Orsay (France). He then joined the group of Prof. Chris Greene at Purdue University (USA) as a postdoc, where he also had the chance to work with Prof. Francis Robicheaux. Finally, after a short period as an assistant professor at the Universidad del Turabo (Puerto Rico), he joined the Fritz Haber Institute. 
The research performed by the group of Jesús Pérez Ríos focusses on the study of cold and ultracold chemistry through classical and quantum mechanical methods. Additionally, the group is interested in machine learning techniques of atomic, molecular, and optical physics and the study of physics beyond the standard model through atomic and molecular systems.
