About this book


The subject of the book is the spectroscopy of weakly bound complexes of molecules as a tool for understanding the intermolecular interactions. The book gives an introduction to the theoretical description of intermolecular forces and a presentation of recent experimental spectroscopic techniques. Two examples -- the Ar--CO and (NH3)2 complexes -- demonstrate the use of these new concepts and the surprising results.
