Reviews - What do customers think about Nonadiabatic Transition: Concepts, Basic Theories and Applications?

Disorganized trash, really confusing......  Jan 29, 2003
Although non-adiabatic transition is one of the very first phenomena discovered in the early days of Quantum Mechanics (1932),typically by Landau,Zener and Stueckelberg,I think this book is one of the first to ever been published on this very important and multidisciplinary topic.

So I was pretty excited about purchasing this book since I am a Graduate student in the field of Quantum Molecular Dynamics where Nonadiabatic Transitions are very important to consider.

Unfortunately, the author (Nakamura) fails to bring any kind of interest to the subject from the very first chapter.I think the main problem is the major lacking regarding the definition of variables in formulas (that seems to appear from nowhere).It makes it very frustating to even follow the author on some simple topics such as the Landau-Zener formula for a scattering two channel system or on semi-classical analysis and WKB method.

Most of the work in this book is consisting of Nakamura's previous publication in Journals such as JCP and Journal of Mathematical Physics.So if you are an expert in the field,I suggested to read the papers instead of purchasing this over-expensive book.For those who doesn't understand the papers,do not purchase this book either since the explanations are quasi-inexistant.

I will give it a star since it is the first (or one of the first) book to ever been published on the topic.
