Molecular Dynamics Simulation
by Giovanni Ciccotti, Mauro Ferrario, Christof Schuette
Publisher: MDPI AG 2014
Number of pages: 628
The contributions collected in this book move from the quantum-statistical description to the validity of classical modeling; they present some perspectives in the algorithmic and in the enhanced sampling approaches, tackling some longstanding challenges to simulation in the area of non-equilibrium, rare events, mesoscale and quantum-classical simulation.

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.
by Peter Hertel - University of Osnabrueck, Germany
Contents: Maxwell equations; A simple model; Thermodynamic equilibrium; Perturbing the equilibrium; Dielectric susceptibility; Dispersion relations; Dissipation-fluctuation theorem; Onsager relations; Electro- and magnetooptic effects; etc.

Theoretical background needed to understand developments in optical research and photonic technology. Topics presented include wave propagation in anisotropic media; interaction of light with matter; quantization of the radiation field; etc.
