About the Authors
  • Many research groups are now attempting to understand how the properties of systems ranging from small molecules to proteins and glasses are determined by the energy landscape. This book provides a self-contained account of energy landscape theory and how it is applied in studies of clusters, biomolecules and glasses. Beautifully illustrated in full color, the volume is geared to graduate students as well as professionals.

    • The first book to present a unified coverage of the subject
    • Full colour throughout
    • Associated website containing simulations and software to download from

    "Wales makes an important contribution: Energy Landscapes provides a pictorial language that simplifies complicated calculations to a form that can be understood and used by many scientists interested in molecular problems." David C. Clary, University of Oxford, Science

    "...A superb and laudible achievement, I believe it will represent a resource on th subject of PES for years to come...I can certainly wholeheartedly recommend it as an exhaustive guide and treasure trove of resources in the fascinating world of many respects a beautiful, well conceived and most informative book." --Rudi Podgornik, Journal of Statistical Physics
