Chemical Reactions and Their Control on the Femtosecond Time Scale: 20th Solvay Conference on Chemistry

This special, self-contained volume details the proceedings of the XXth Solvay Conference on Chemistry, bringing together the most prominent contributors to modern photochemistry. It presents the most recent research on chemical reactions and their control on the femtosecond time scale. It also contains first-hand information on the problem of laser coherent control of many-body quantum systems and of chemical reactions, as well as on perspectives about possible future applications.
