Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Thorough But Understandable Introduction To Molecular Symmetry And Group Theory As Applied To Chemical Problems! In a friendly, easy-to-understand style, this new book invites the reader to discover by example the power of symmetry arguments for understanding theoretical problems in chemistry. The author shows the evolution of ideas and demonstrates the centrality of symmetry and group theory to a complete understanding of the theory of structure and bonding. Plus, the book offers explicit demonstrations of the most effective techniques for applying group theory to chemical problems, including the tabular method of reducing representations and the use of group-subgroup relationships for dealing with infinite-order groups. Also Available From Wiley:

* Concepts and Models of Inorganic Chemistry, 3/E, by Bodie E. Douglas, Darl H. McDaniel, and John J. Alexander 0-471-62978-2

* Basic Inorganic Chemistry, 3/E, by F. Albert Cotton, Paul Gaus, and Geoffrey Wilkinson 0-471-50532-3

Book News Annotation:

Frustrated at the lack of materials for his junior-senior course in inorganic chemistry, Carter (chemistry, U. of Massachusetts- Boston) developed his own textbook over several years of drafts and refinement. He introduces molecular symmetry and group theory as they apply to inorganic chemical problems, emphasizing the meaning and chemical significance of the mathematics rather than rigorous derivation.
