"Advances in Quantum Chemistry" presents surveys of current developments in this rapidly developing field that falls between the historically established areas of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology. With invited reviews written by leading international researchers, each presenting new results, it provides a single vehicle for following progress in this interdisciplinary area. This volume concerns the proceedings of the 4th International Conference on the DV-Xa Method. The focus is on key issues of materials science, surfaces, boundaries, defects, metals, ceramics and organic materials and spectroscopy.The DV-Xa method is a Density Functional-like development, which has reached an unparalleled theoretical and practical sophistication in Japan and Korea. This title publishes articles, invited reviews and proceedings of major international conferences and workshops. It is written by leading international researchers in quantum and theoretical chemistry. It highlights important interdisciplinary developments.

I was born in Springfield, Mass, and Educated at Williams College (BA) and the University of New Hampshire (PhD). Following that, I was a postdoctoral at Uppsala University in Sweden, and at Northwestern University in Evanston. For the past four decades, I have worked in the Quantum Theory Project, Department of Physics, at the University of Florida. My interests have always been in the theory of molecular electronic structure. More recently, I have been working on the interaction of fast particles, mostly protons and alpha particles, with proto-biological molecules, in terms of the transfer of energy from the projectile to the molecular target, and the outcome of that energy transfer. Such energy transfer is primarily electronic, and the initial electronic excitation results in target electronic and vibrational excitation, ionization, fragmentation, charge exchange, and other processes. The study of these processes, known as stopping power, has applications in fields from microelectronics to tumor therapy. The investigations are interesting and continue.
