about

This work focuses on complementary crystallographic and spectroscopic areas of dynamic structural science, from papers presented at the 46th NATO sponsored course in Erice, Sicily 2013. These papers cover a range of material from background concepts to more advanced material and represent a fully inter-disciplinary collection of the latest ideas and results within the field. They will appeal to practising or novice crystallographers, both chemical and biological, who wish to learn more about modern spectroscopic methods and convergent advances and hence vice versa for experimental and computational spectroscopists. The chapters refer to the latest techniques, software and results and each chapter is fully referenced. The volume provides an excellent starting point for new comers in the emerging, multi-disciplinary area of time resolved science.

Editorial Reviews

"The goal of the course was to explore links between dynamic structural science and energy, the environmental security and chemical-biological-radiological-nuclear (CRBN) agents. . the book can serve as a jumping off point for scientists new to the area of dynamic structural science, or as a tool for more senior scientists to quickly catch up in an arena of rapidly changing capabilities in the exciting area of structural dynamics." (George N. Phillips Jr., Crystallography Reviews, Vol. 21 (4), 2015)
