By Takeshi Akasaka, Atsuhiro Osuka, Shunichi Fukuzumi, Hideki Kandori, Yoshio Aso

This booklet offers the main complicated evaluation to be had of all facets of π-electron structures, together with novel constructions, new man made protocols, chemical and actual houses, spectroscopic and computational insights, molecular engineering, equipment homes and physiological houses. π-Electron platforms are ubiquitous in nature. vegetation convert gentle power into chemical power via photosynthetic tactics, within which chlorophylls and different porphyrinoids play a big position. at the one hand, learn to profit approximately photosynthesis from nature has ended in knowing of electron and effort move tactics and to attaining synthetic power conversion platforms encouraged by way of nature. nevertheless, fresh advances in natural and inorganic chemistry give the opportunity to build novel π-electron structures that had by no means existed in nature. The authors of this e-book are from various examine fields together with natural chemistry, inorganic chemistry, actual chemistry, fabrics technological know-how, and biology, offering a entire assessment of π-electron platforms for a large readership. not just experts but additionally graduate scholars operating in π-electron structures will locate the booklet of significant curiosity. all through, the various capability for destiny fruitful purposes of π-electron platforms is printed to the reader.

Dynamics of One-Dimensional Quantum Systems

One-dimensional quantum platforms express attention-grabbing homes past the scope of the mean-field approximation. although, the advanced arithmetic concerned is a excessive barrier to non-specialists. Written for graduate scholars and researchers new to the sector, this publication is a self-contained account of the way to derive the unique quasi-particle photo from the precise resolution of versions with inverse-square interparticle interactions.

Fatigue of Materials and Structures: Application to Damage and Design

The layout of mechanical buildings with enhanced and predictable sturdiness can't be completed with out a thorough figuring out of the mechanisms of fatigue harm and extra particularly the relationships among the microstructure of fabrics and their fatigue homes. Written by way of top specialists within the box, this e-book (which is complementary to Fatigue of fabrics and buildings: software to break and layout, additionally edited via Claude Bathias and Andre Pineau), presents an authoritative, accomplished and unified therapy of the mechanics and micromechanisms of fatigue in metals, polymers and composites.

Reliable Design of Electronic Equipment: An Engineering Guide

This booklet explains reliability innovations with examples from electronics layout for the good thing about engineers. It offers the appliance of de-rating, FMEA, overstress analyses and reliability development checks for designing trustworthy digital gear. sufficient details is equipped for designing automatic reliability database method to help the applying of the strategies by way of designers.


There was major progress within the box of nanofluidics, the place nanoscale analytical tools hire micromachined beneficial properties and may be able to control fluid samples with excessive precision and potency and feature many benefits over their traditional (larger) analogues. the recent variation of Nanofluidics has been totally revised and up-to-date with the newest developments and purposes.

This is especially true if supramolecular chirality is generated from a self-assembly of helicenes. Here in this chapter, examples of higher-order molecular architectures of helicenes and their related compounds in aggregates, in crystals, and in macromolecules connected by covalent bonds will be summarized.
