About the book

Description

The Actinides: Electronic Structure and Related Properties, Volume II presents a comprehensive review of the pertinent information and the existing body of knowledge on the electric structure of the actinide elements, compounds, and alloys. This book discusses the behavior of actinides in detail. Organized into eight chapters, this volume begins with an overview of how electronic band-structure calculations have contributed to the basic understanding of diverse physical properties of the AX compounds. This text then describes the concept of magnetism in the metals, intermetallic compounds, and dilute alloys. Other chapters consider the optical experiments to obtain mappings of the occupied and empty electronic density of states. This book includes as well a comprehensive list of compounds, as well as a description and classification of crystal-structure data. The final chapter deals with the important improvements in the experimental methods for studying surfaces and surface reactions. This book is a valuable resource for physicists and materials scientists.
