Properties of the effective cross sections which have been utilized in the expressions for nonequilibrium phenomena in dilute polyatomic gases are discussed, and interrelationships amongst them elucidated. Then, the evaluation of such effective cross sections from molecular scattering theoryis outlined. The temperature dependence of the effective cross sections as determined experimentally is discussed, and for molecular hydrogen, compared with the results of full quantum scattering calculations. Transport phenomena in rarefied gases, the modelling of the surface scattering operatorand the derivation of boundary-layer effects (with and without magnetic fields present) are covered in four chapters. Aspects of the collisionless gas regime are then dealt with in a separate chapter. The penultimate chapter covers relevant mathematical material, and the final chapter providestables of experimental data and effective cross sections deducted from these data wherever possible. This book completes this major two-volume work on Non-equilibrium phenomena in polyatomic gases, and stands as a definitive treatise in this area of chemical physics. Volume 1, on dilute gases, was published in August 1990.

Editorial Reviews

'There is no doubt that the subject matter of this monograph is highly technical and has developed to a high level of sophistication ... The authors have not aimed for completeness of the list of references but cite the most important ones, mostly up to 1986 ... This monograph will be thestandard reference for many years to come, and will serve equally well to introduce the uninitiated to this fascinating field.'H.J. Kreuzer, Faraday Transaction, Issue 10 (May 1992)
