This booklet is a tribute to the existence and paintings of J Q Chen. The contributions of Chen to nuclear and molecular physics are mentioned vis-à-vis current advancements in those fields. between different topics, the current prestige of microscopic theories of the interacting boson version in nuclear physics and the idea of symmetry model of molecular vibrations in molecular physics are reviewed. The latter conception is very precious for big molecular species comparable to fullerenes, the place icosahedral symmetry performs a primary position.

ADV IN ATOMIC and MOLECULAR PHYSICS V25
Advances in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics, validated in 1965, maintains its culture of excellence with quantity 32, released in honor of Founding Editor Sir David Bates upon his retirement as editorof the sequence. This quantity provides experiences of themes relating to the purposes of atomic and molecular physics to atmospheric physics and astrophysics.
Over the last twenty years, the idea of ion-atom collisions, and especially of charge-exchange reactions, has complex quickly to the purpose the place current texts are not any longer appropriate as an advent to the topic. This booklet goals to therapy the location by way of supplying an account of contemporary theoretical tools used to review the interplay of optimistic ions with atoms (or ions), concentrating relatively on charge-exchange reactions.
