Publisher Synopsis

` This unique book treats an enormous amount of material clearly and elegantly. I believe that for many scientists and engineers it will become a standard and invaluable reference book. ' Australian Journal of Physhics ` The volume is well worth having to those interested in the interaction of radiation with matter. ' Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol.110, No.7,1988 Read more...
