The purpose fo this book is to present a comprehensive account of the physical concepts and theoretical approaches developed for the study of the dynamical properties of liquids (or more generally, of high-density fluids) at a microscopic level. After a discussion of the basic dynamicalphenomena to be interupted, as well as of the various experimental probes, the book gradually exposes the reader to the sophisticated theoretical techniques needed for a satisfactory account of both single particle and coleective motions. The complications are faced in a stepwise fashion, withspecial attention to the physical content of the results. As a result of the progress achieved in the last decade, in the end a satisfactory understanding of most of the phenomena characterizing this fascinating field emerges.
Umberto Balucani and Marco Zoppi are both Senior CNR Researchers at the Istituto di Elettronica Quantistica del Consiglio Nazionale delle Richerche (IEQ-CNR), Firenze.

Editorial Reviews

`...the book is a useful addition to the specialized literature, offering a comprehensive and diligent account of a limited area of research, at its current level of development. It should be useful to beginners for complementary reading after broader introductions to the liquid state ofmatter.'Libri Ricevuti E Recensioni, 1996
