Second volume published by this author in the area of Molecular Spectroscopy; per the Preface, "this volume offers reviews of new experimental and theoretical developments in molecular spectroscopy and is intended to serve as a useful resource to researchers in this subject." Chapter headings include: An Introduction to the Least-Squares Fitting of Spectroscopic Data; Microwave Spectra; The Renner-Teller Effect, Intensities from Infrared Spectra; and Special Topics.
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.
