About this book


Recent years have witnessed tremendous progress in the theoretical treatment of surfaces and processes on surfaces. A variety of surface properties can now be described from first principles, i.e. without invoking any empirical parameters. In this book the theoretical concepts and computational tools necessary and relevant for a microscopic approach to the theoretical description of surface science is presented. Based on the fundamental theoretical entity, the Hamiltonian, a hierarchy of theoretical methods will be introduced. Furthermore, a detailed discussion of surface phenomena is given, making the book suitable for both graduate students and for experimentalists seeking an overview of the theoretical concepts in surface science.
