Introduction to the Theory and Applications of Molecular and Quantum Mechanics
Author: Errol G. Lewars
This is the third edition of the successful text-reference book that covers computational chemistry. It features changes to the presentation of key concepts and includes revised and new material with several expanded exercises at various levels such as 'harder questions' for those ready to be tested in greater depth - this aspect is absent from other textbooks in the field. Although introductory and assuming no prior knowledge of computational chemistry, it covers the essential aspects of the subject. There are several introductory textbooks on computational chemistry; this one is (as in its previous editions) a unique textbook in the field with copious exercises (and questions) and solutions with discussions. Noteworthy is the fact that it is the only book at the introductory level that shows in detail yet clearly how matrices are used in one important aspect of computational chemistry. It also serves as an essential guide for researchers, and as a reference book.

An Interactive Introduction to Basis Set Theory
Author: Charles M. Quinn
Computational Quantum Chemistry removes much of the mystery of modern computer programs for molecular orbital calculations by showing how to develop Excel spreadsheets to perform model calculations and investigate the properties of basis sets. Using the book together with the CD-ROM provides a unique interactive learning tool. In addition, because of the integration of theory with working examples on the CD-ROM, the reader can apply advanced features available in the spreadsheet to other applications in chemistry, physics, and a variety of disciplines that require the solution of differential equations. This book and CD-ROM makes a valuable companion for instructors, course designers, and students. It is suitable for direct applications in practical courses in theoretical chemistry and atomic physics, as well as for teaching advanced features of Excel in IT courses.

This book will revolutionize the way physical chemistry is taught by bridging the gap between the traditional "solve a bunch of equations for a very simple model" approach and the computational methods that are used to solve research problems. While some recent textbooks include exercises using pre-packaged Hartree-Fock/DFT calculations, this is largely limited to giving students a proverbial black box. The DIY (do-it-yourself) approach taken in this book helps student gain understanding by building their own simulations from scratch. The reader of this book should come away with the ability to apply and adapt these techniques in computational chemistry to his or her own research problems, and have an enhanced ability to critically evaluate other computational results. This book is mainly intended to be used in conjunction with an existing physical chemistry text, but it is also well suited as a stand-alone text for upper level undergraduate or intro graduate computational chemistry courses.

Category: Juvenile Nonfiction
Author: Stephan P. A. Sauer
Publisher: OUP Oxford
This is a textbook on the theory and calculation of molecular electromagnetic and spectroscopic properties designed for a one-semester course with lectures and exercise classes. The idea of the book is to provide thorough background knowledge for the calculation of electromagnetic and spectroscopic properties of molecules with modern quantum chemical software packages. The book covers the derivation of the molecular Hamiltonian in the presence of electromagnetic fields, and of time-independent and time-dependent perturbation theory in the form of response theory. It defines many molecular properties and spectral parameters and gives an introduction to modern computational chemistry methods.
An Introduction to the Quantum Chemistry of Polymers and Its Applications
Author: Jean-Marie André,Joseph Delhalle,Jean-Luc Brédas
Publisher: World Scientific
This book is intended for those who are interested in understanding the electronic structure and properties of polymers. The scope of the book is to provide the non-specialist reader with a comprehensive and unified description: (i) of quantum mechanical methods, mainly originating from quantum chemistry, to calculate the electronic properties of polymers, (ii) of their use for interpreting and predicting results in fields where the electronic structure is playing an important role, like the electrical conductivity and the non linear optical properties of conjugated polymers. It will also serve as a reference book to lecture graduate students on the electronic structure of polymers or more generally of quasi-one dimensional materials. In this framework, it is worth stressing that the quantum theory of polymers bridges the gap between chemistry and physics. Since no book of this kind involving a strong interaction between theoretical and experimental concepts is available at the moment, it will also meet a need for a timely monograph in a field of important and fast growing interest. Contents:The Band Theory of PolymersThe Computational Machinery of Band Theory of PolymersQuantum Approach to Electrical Conduction Phenomena in Conjugated Organic PolymersQuantum Chemistry Aided Design of Chains for Optoelectronics Readership: Theoretical chemists, physicists, materials scientists, solid state physicists, condensed matter physicists and physical chemists.

With Applications to Chemical Engineering
Author: Kuo-Tsung Yu,Xigang Yuan
This book offers an easy-to-understand introduction to the computational mass transfer (CMT) method. On the basis of the contents of the first edition, this new edition is characterized by the following additional materials. It describes the successful application of this method to the simulation of the mass transfer process in a fluidized bed, as well as recent investigations and computing methods for predictions for the multi-component mass transfer process. It also demonstrates the general issues concerning computational methods for simulating the mass transfer of the rising bubble process. This new edition has been reorganized by moving the preparatory materials for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Computational Heat Transfer into appendices, additions of new chapters, and including three new appendices on, respectively, generalized representation of the two-equation model for the CMT, derivation of the equilibrium distribution function in the lattice-Boltzmann method, and derivation of the Navier-Stokes equation using the lattice-Boltzmann model. This book is a valuable resource for researchers and graduate students in the fields of computational methodologies for the numerical simulation of fluid dynamics, mass and/or heat transfer involved in separation processes (distillation, absorption, extraction, adsorption etc.), chemical/biochemical reactions, and other related processes.

This textbook does away with the classic, unimaginative approach and comes straight to the point with a bare minimum of mathematics -- emphasizing the understanding of concepts rather than presenting endless strings of formulae. It nonetheless covers all important aspects of computational chemistry, such as - vector space theory - quantum mechanics - approximation methods - theoretical models - and computational methods. Throughout the chapters, mathematics are differentiated by necessity for understanding - fundamental formulae, and all the others. All formulae are explained step by step without omission, but the non-vital ones are marked and can be skipped by those who do not relish complex mathematics. The reader will find the text a lucid and innovative introduction to theoretical and computational chemistry, with food for thought given at the end of each chapter in the shape of several questions that help develop understanding of the concepts. What the reader will not find in this book are condescending sentences such as, 'From (formula A) and (formula M) it is obvious that (formula Z).'
