Molecular Rydberg Dynamics


This is my doctoral thesis, written between 1998 and 2002 under the supervision of Professor Mark Child at the University of Oxford. Any of its shortcomings are entirely my own.

Some background

Rydberg states of atoms and molecules take their name from Johannes Rydberg of Halmstad, (scientist, 1854 to 1919, biography presented online by the University of St Andrews), not Viktor Rydberg of Jönköping (writer, 1828 to 1895).
