The realm of molecular studies primarily lie within the scope of chemistry, molecular physics has emerged as a subject, primarily concerned with molecular behaviour as it relates to the quantum theory. As such, molecular physics has become a crucial field for research in physics, adding to our understanding of intermolecular forces and the way the control the behaviour of molecules.
The present text has been designed for both graduate as well as post-graduate students in physics, seeking to enhance their understanding of molecular physics. It brings under the head the principles, concepts and practices which define molecular physics in the contemporary world, and give a balanced view on both its theory and application. In addition, it makes, readers aware of the most up-to-date information on the subject, by also providing them with clear diagrams and illustrations.
