Publications(January 2002 - December 2002)
- S. S. Kano, Y. Zempo, T. Kasuga, and Y. Oyanagi, "Computational
Physics", Vol.1 (295 pages), Vol.2 (447 pages), Japanese
translation of the book by R. H. Landau, Asakura Shoten,
Abstract - Help students
master real-world problems as they develop new insight
into the physical sciences. Problems in the physical sciences
that once baffled and frustrated scientists can now be
solved easily with the aid of a computer. Computers can
quickly complete complex calculations, provide numerical
simulations of natural systems, and explore the unknown.
Computational Physics shows students how to use computers
to solve scientific problems and understand systems at
a level previously possible only in a research environment.
Adaptable to a ten-week class or a full-year course, it
provides C and Fortran programs that can be modified and
rewritten as needed to implement a wide range of computational
- S. S. Kano, H. Kano and M. Ichimura, "Basic Calculus,"
Part 1 (229 pages) and Part 2 (388 pages), Japanese translation
of the book by A. J. Hahn, Springer-Verlag, Tokyo, 2001
Abstract - The approach
to basic calculus is driven by the responses of the masters
of mathematics to the important problems of their day.
Part I develops calculus along with the necessary trigonometry
and analytic geometry within a historical context, while
Part II looks at more rigorous constructs and shows how
calculus informs and enlightens in today's world of science,
engineering, and business. This text is most suitable
for a modern calculus course of intellectual substance,
or an Honors Calculus or History of Mathematics course.

of CO/Ni(111): UV pumping and the transient hot band transition
of adsorbed CO", Bull. Chem. Soc. Jpn., Vol. 75, 1125-1132,
Abstract - Picosecond
transient sum-frequency generation spectra of CO/Ni(111)
were observed under irradiation of 266 nm UV pulse. Transient
hot band (νCO = 2 ← 1) transition
of adsorbed CO was found by analysis based on a dipole-dipole
interaction model with the coherent potential approximation.

response of SFG spectra of D2O-ice/CO/Pt(111) interface
with irradiation of ultra-short NIR pump pulses", Chem.
Phys. Lett., Vol. 362, 476-482, 2002.
Abstract - A transient
response, followed by a near-IR (NIR) pump pulse of 35
ps, of 10 molecular layers of D2O ice on CO/Pt(111) at
130 K in ultrahigh vacuum was investigated by sum frequency
generation (SFG) spectroscopy. The D2O ice crystalline
phase changed, without desorption of D2O to the gas phase,
to an amorphous or a liquid-like phase due to the pumping,
and it recovered to the crystalline phase in a sub nanosecond
