A large variety of nonlinear spectroscopic methods have so far been
developed and applied to studies of molecular structure and dynamics.
Some of these methods utilize complex techniques, making it difficult
to understand the underlying principles. Furthermore, most of these
methods are referred to by nicknames or acronyms, which keeps them shrouded
in mystery for most non-specialists who are thereby discouraged from
mastering and applying the methods to molecular systems. Under these
circumstances it was judged appropriate and timely to overview those
nonlinear spectroscopic methods which are currently particularly useful
for studies of molecular structure and dynamics. Thus, the Commission
on Molecular Structure and Spectroscopy of the International Union of
Pure and Applied Chemistry decided to publish a book, intended to provide
an introduction to nonlinear spectroscopy for non-specialists.
