Ideas of Quantum Chemistry shows how quantum mechanics is applied to chemistry to give it a theoretical foundation. From the Schroedinger equation to electronic and nuclear motion to intermolecular interactions, this book covers the primary quantum underpinnings of chemical systems. The structure of the book (a TREE-form) emphasizes the logical relationships among various topics, facts and methods. It shows the reader which parts of the text are needed for understanding specific aspects of the subject matter. Interspersed throughout the text are short biographies of key scientists and their contributions to the development of the field. Ideas of Quantum Chemistry has both textbook and reference work aspects. Like a textbook, the material is organized into digestible sections with each chapter following the same structure. It answers frequently asked questions and highlights the most important conclusions and the essential mathematical formulae in the text. In its reference aspects, it has a broader range than traditional quantum chemistry books and reviews virtually all of the pertinent literature. It is useful both for beginners as well as specialists in advanced topics of quantum chemistry. An appendix on the Internet supplements this book. Presents the widest range of quantum chemical problems covered in one book Unique structure allows material to be tailored to the specific needs of the reader Informal language facilitates the understanding of difficult topics

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. div“/div>

Quantum Chemistry

A Unified Approach Second Edition

Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Company

ISBN: 1911299581

Category: Science

Page: 332

View: 5146

This book is a presentation of a qualitative theory of chemical bonding, stressing the physical processes which occur on bond formation. It differs from most (if not all) other books in that it does not seek to “rationalise” the phenomena of bonding by a series of mnemonic rules. A principal feature is a unified and consistent treatment across all types of bonding in organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry. Each chapter has an Assignment Section containing “problems” which might be usefully attempted to improve the understanding of the new material in that chapter. The new edition has had several appendices added which give support to concepts which, if included in the main text, would have hindered the main thrust of the presentation. These new appendices are an attempt to clarify oversights and errors which have been tacitly ignored and which have now become part of the conventional wisdom.

As Applied to Chemistry and Chemical Physics

Page: 351

View: 9651

This text presents a rigorous mathematical account of the principles of quantum mechanics, in particular as applied to chemistry and chemical physics. Applications are used as illustrations of the basic theory. The first two chapters serve as an introduction to quantum theory, although it is assumed that the reader has been exposed to elementary quantum mechanics as part of an undergraduate physical chemistry or atomic physics course. Following a discussion of wave motion leading to Schrödinger's wave mechanics, the postulates of quantum mechanics are presented along with essential mathematical concepts and techniques. The postulates are rigorously applied to the harmonic oscillator, angular momentum, the hydrogen atom, the variation method, perturbation theory, and nuclear motion. Modern theoretical concepts such as hermitian operators, Hilbert space, Dirac notation, and ladder operators are introduced and used throughout. This text is appropriate for beginning graduate students in chemistry, chemical physics, molecular physics and materials science.

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.
