Summary

"Written following a new paradigm, this textbook takes advantage of the insight of world experts who have contributed chapters and relies upon its editors to seamlessly integrate the information into a unified presentation. It covers experimental and computational techniques and compares different methods. The book goes on to describe their interplay and the advantages of their combined use. It is not merely a review of the modern literature, but a true textbook that can be used by advanced students"--Provided by publisher
