    • First coherent presentation of time-resolved structure analysis from statics to femtoseconds
    • Discussing almost all dynamic processes in condensed matters

    Aims and Scope

    Volume 1 of this work presents theory and methods to study the structure of condensed matter on different time scales. The authors cover the structure analysis by X-ray diffraction methods from crystalline to amorphous materials, from static-relaxed averaged structures to short-lived electronically excited structures, including detailed descriptions of the time-resolved experimental methods. Complementary, an overview of the theoretical description of condensed matter by static and time-dependent density functional theory is given, starting from the fundamental quantities that can be obtained by these methods through to the recent challenges in the description of time dependent phenomena such as optical excitations.

    Static structural analysis of condensed matter: from single-crystal to amorphous
    DFT calculations of solids in the ground state
    TDDFT, excitations, and spectroscopy
    Time-resolved structural analysis: probing condensed matter in motion
    Ultrafast science

    "The book is well structured and the content of the different chapters sufficiently distinct and complementary. For newcomers in the field, the book offers a highly tutorial introduction to concepts and methods, augmented by a selection of recent prototypical results of research. The combination of theoretical and experimental chapters is convincing and makes use of consistent definitions of physical quantities and mathematical symbols. [...] the book conveys important knowledge to a broad audience and provides a very good introduction to an exciting new field of X-ray science."
