Summary:
"The study of energy landscapes holds the key to resolving some of the most important contemporary problems in chemical physics. Many groups are now attempting to understand the properties of clusters, glasses and proteins in terms of the underlying potential energy surface, or free energy surfaces derived from it. The aim of this book is to define and unify the field of energy landscapes in a reasonably

   schema:description "The emergence of structure, dynamics and thermodynamics and their relation to the landscape is then described, followed by applications to clusters, biomolecules and glasses in the final three chapters."
