Theories of Molecular Reaction Dynamics

The Microscopic Foundation of Chemical Kinetics

Second Edition

Niels E. Henriksen and Flemming Y. Hansen

Oxford Graduate Texts

  • Unique graduate-level introduction with attention to basic concepts
  • Comprehensive discussion of basic theories of reaction dynamics in gas phase and of theories of condensed-phase dynamics
