This e-book explores some of the most exciting frontiers of atomic, molecular and nuclear physics. Written and illustrated in a simplified manner, this e-book aims to provide insight to its readers how electrons play a major role in the atomic and nuclear collision processes. Indeed, this book contains a wealth of theoretical information and variety of fascinating experiments to unravel the fundamental mechanisms positron, negative, ion, photons, protons, and antiprotons which makes the readers visualize different types of collisions and the physics behind. Each of the nine chapters in this bool are written by prominent scientists from atomic and molecular physics including Prof. R. D. DuBois and A. C. F. Santos.

This eBook covers several essential aspects of multiple interaction processes between electrons, nucleus, atoms and molecules. It addresses exciting applications of these fundamental processes, and gives insights in the recent experimental and theoretical developments of leading research groups of these areas. It will provide the researchers of this field a valuable overview of this broad and rapidly evolving field. The various contributions, mostly from Latin-American research groups, show the dynamism of this community in the area of basic molecular processes. The forthcoming facility "Syrius Project" in Brazil will benefit from the expertise of this community and allow the realization of ground-breaking experiments. We hope that this eBook will promote interactions between the researchers of this area and provoke many passionate discussions.
