About this book

Introduction

This book proposes two simple quantum mechanical models for the analytical description of metal surfaces and nanoparticles. It gives an ostensive picture of the forces acting in a metal surface and deduces analytical formulae for the description of their physical properties. This book explains the relation between near-surface stress and familiar surface parameters. The concept of the separation of the three-dimensional body into three one-dimensional subsystems was applied. The content is of interest to all those working in the field of surface physics.
