About the Authors
  • The Jahn-Teller effect is one of the most fascinating phenomena in modern physics and chemistry, providing a general approach to understanding the properties of molecules and crystals and their origins. The effect inspired one of the most important recent scientific discoveries, the concept of high-temperature superconductivity. This comprehensive volume presents the background of the theory and its main applications in physics and chemistry, along with more recent achievements. Full descriptions are presented alongside thorough references to original material. The 2006 book contains over 200 figures to aid visual explanation and avoids bulky mathematical deductions and overly technical language. It is intended for graduate students and academic researchers working in solid state physics, quantum chemistry, crystallography, spectroscopy, and materials science.

    • Avoids overly technical language and contains over 200 illustrations, making it accessible to a wide range of students and researchers
    • Full description of both the theory and all the main applications of one of the most fascinating phenomena in physics and chemistry, with thorough referencing to related literature
    • The subject index and chemical-formula index allow for fast reference to all the molecular systems and crystals considered with respect to the Jahn-Teller Effect

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: ' … provides a very logical, coherent, and generalized picture of the JTE at first hand … extensive mathematical derivations are skillfully avoided … perfectly organized from the pedagogical point of view … contains rich and detailed subject and formula indexes … Overall, the book is an invaluable contribution to the JTE field of study, and will be useful for scientists with a wide range of levels of expertise … I am happy to have this book on my shelf.' Angewandte Chemie International Edition

    Review of the hardback: 'The Jahn-Teller Effect … completely satisfies the target goal to give an encyclopaedia of the fundamentals and applications of the JTE… can be recommended for graduate students as well as for confirmed researchers in molecular and solid-state sciences. I should suggest to any university library to buy this book.' ChemPhysChem

    Review of the hardback: 'Bersuker is one of the most widely recognized authorities in the field of the JTE. In comparing this book with others on the JTE, it appears to be the broadest in subject, covering the most important elements of the fundamental theory of vibronic interactions in molecules and crystals and its applications in physics, chemistry, and biology … Overall this book is a great contribution to the JTE field and a very serious contribution, i think, to science in general. it reflects the character of the author who has an encyclopedic view of physical and chemical problems, is interested in both fundamental concepts and new ideas, and is aggressively focused on new unsolved problems.' Journal of the American Chemical Society
