Contains reviews of then-current advances in several phases of research in high-resolution molecular spectroscopy, with particular emphasis on electronic, infrared, and microwave studies of molecular species in gas phase and in matrices (from dust jacket flap). ***Professor K. Narahari Rao (1921- 2000) led in the development of improved methods of studying infrared spectra at higher and higher resolution. These methods were applied to the determination of molecular constants, studies of intra-molecule interactions, and observations of transitions normally considered to be unavailable for study. These research activities resulted in over 300 publications, including six books and six major review articles.
Professor C. Weldon Mathews is serving as Emeritus Professor at Ohio State University, specializing in Molecular Structure and Spectroscopy, and Fourier Transform Spectroscopy.
