  • A. Yu. Borisov
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 287)


Energy migration is a very general phenomenon. It proceeds between oscillating systems in mechanics, acoustics and electricity, it takes place in our world, in planet systems and between molecules in the microworld; this last one is the topic of this article.
