Calculation of dispersion energies
MetadataShow full item record
We summarize the theory of van der Waals (dispersion) forces, with emphasis on recent microscopic approaches that permit the prediction of forces between solids and nanostructures right down to intimate contact and binding. Some connections are pointed out between microscopic theory and macroscopic Lifshitz theory.
