It is directed towards graduate students and research workers in the fields of astrophysics and astrochemistry who wish to analyse and interpret observations of the interstellar gas. The book will also be of interest to physical chemists who seek a better appreciation of their discipline to an important and expanding area of astronomy. The text deals primarily with processes occuring in interstellar molecular clouds, where the electron density is low and collisions with the abundant neutral species, H, H2, and He, predominate.

As the energies involved are very small, the theory is necessarily based on the quantum mechanical method with simpler, classical models being used to interpret the results wherever possible. The compilation of sources of data pertaining to the rotational excitation of interstellar molecules will be helpful to radioastronomers interpreting mm-wave observations of molecular clouds.
