Quantum Systems in Chemistry and Physics: Progress in Methods and Applicationsis a collection of 33 selected papers from the scientific contributions presented at the 16th International Workshop on Quantum Systems in Chemistry and Physics (QSCP-XVI), held at Ishikawa Prefecture Museum of Art in Kanazawa, Japan, from September 11th to 17th, 2011.
The volume discusses the state of the art, new trends, and the future of methods in molecular quantum mechanics and their applications to a wide range of problems in physics, chemistry, and biology. The breadth and depth of the scientific topics discussed during QSCP-XVI appears in the classification of the contributions in six parts:

I. Fundamental Theory
II. Molecular Processes
III. Molecular Structure
IV. Molecular Properties
V. Condensed Matter
VI. Biosystems.

Quantum Systems in Chemistry and Physics: Progress in Methods and Applicationsis written for advanced graduate students as well as for professionals in theoretical chemical physics and physical chemistry. The book covers current scientific topics in molecular, nano, material, and bio sciences and provides insights into methodological developments and applications of quantum theory in physics, chemistry, and biology that have become feasible at end of 2011.
