    Abstract. In the previous paper in this volume we have studied the p-spin interaction model just below the critical temperature, and we have rigorously proved several aspects of the physicist's prediction that this model exhibits "one level of symmetry breaking". In the present paper we show how...

    We examine path-integral methods for computing electronic coupling matrix elements relevant to long-ranged electron transfer. Formulas are derived that generalize those already found in the literature. These extensions allow for efficient computation, especially for complex systems where there...

    Research papers and textbooks addressing the problem of internal rotation in a molecule explain symmetry properties of the torsional potential by local geometrical symmetries of the molecule. It is shown here that symmetry properties of a torsional potential derive from permutation inversion...
