The present book attempts to fill a need for a fundamental textbook which explains the optical properties of solids. It is meant to explain a number of important concepts rather than present a complete survey of experimental data.

The aim of molecular dynamics is to model the detailed microscopic dynamical behavior of many different types of systems. Molecular dynamics is a technique to investigate equilibrium and transport properties of many–body systems.
