Elements of Molecular Symmetry Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A unique, much-needed introduction to molecular symmetry and group theory Elements of Molecular Symmetry takes the topic of group theory a step further than most books, presenting a quantum chemistry treatment useful for computational, quantum, physical, and inorganic chemists alike. Clearly explaining how general groups and group algebra describe molecules, Yngve ?hrn first develops the theory, then provides coverage not only for point groups, but also permutation groups, space groups, and Lie groups. With over three decades of teaching experience, Dr. ?hrn brings to the discussion unprecedented depth and clarity, incorporating rigorous topics at a level accessible to anyone with basic knowledge of calculus and algebra. This unique and timely book:

* Extends coverage to molecular orbital theory,

* Utilizes powerful examples to illustrate basic concepts

* Contains introductory material on space groups and continuous groups, including point-group character tables

* Provides a solid background for exploring the theoretical literature

Book News Annotation:

Ohrn (chemistry and physics, U. of Florida, Gainesville) presents a quantum chemistry treatment of group theory. He explains how general groups and group algebra describe molecules, covering point groups, permutation groups, space groups, and Lie groups, as well as molecular orbital theory, molecular vibrations, and elementary band theory.
