Addressing problems in physics, chemistry, materials science, and computer science, Graphics and Animation in Surface Science demonstrates how graphics and animation can be used as integral tools for understanding molecular processes in science. The book presents several different types of graphics of varying sophistication, and shows how difficult aspects of physical problems can be modeled and understood using graphical simulations. It introduces terminology where applicable, explores a wide variety of applications, and illustrates some results in an eight-page color section. Requiring only a modest amount of computing knowledge, the book includes abundant references for further reading with contact names and addresses that enable readers to obtain software to reproduce the results described in the text.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
