'The book can be strongly recommended. It succeeds in bridging the gap between the many different facets of chemistry and physics. The subject is sure to gain in importance in the coming years.' Angewandte Chemie, March 2007 Written by the chemist originators as well as by a theorist who has been one of the protagonists of the development of the field, this book is explicitly addressed to an audience of chemists and physicists and aims to use a language suitable for the two communities.
