The theory of intermolecular force has advanced greatly in the last ten or fifteen years. The improved experimental and computational methods have made it possible to develop much more meticulous descriptions, and simple empirical models are no longer adequate to account for the detailed and accurate experimental measurements that are now available. Therefore a knowledge of advanced mathematical techniques is essential. The Theory of Intermolecular Forces is the first book to fully describe these techniques. Stone explains recent advances and sets out the mathematical techniques needed to handle the more elaborate models being used increasingly by both theoreticians and experimentalists in spectroscopy, molecular dynamics, and molecular modeling. Techniques described include the use of higher-rank multipole moments to describe electrostatic interactions, Cartesian and spherical tensor methods, and modern ab initio perturbation theories of intermolecular interactions

A. J. Stone is at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.Review:
"I believe that Stone's book will be very popular in the upcoming years, as the first-principles approach to the condensed phase and molecular clusters, based on ab initio computed intermolecular potentials, becomes more widespread. . . .The book is very well written. The style is light and the reading enjoyable. . . .The combination of a didactic approach and full and deep coverage of the subject matter makes the book accessible to advanced undergraduates and, at the same time, very useful for seasoned researchers in the field."--Physics Today
