Molecular Quantum Mechanics By: Peter Atkins Ronald Friedman @ Rm60.00
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA - 2005-02-17
Paperback | 4 Edition | 588 Pages
Quantum mechanics embraces the behaviour of all known forms of matter, including the atoms and molecules from which we, and all living organisms, are composed. "Molecular Quantum Mechanics" leads us through this absorbing yet challenging subject, unravelling those fundamental physical principles which explain how all matter behaves. With the clarity of exposition and rich pedagogy which have established the book as a leading text in the field, "Molecular Quantum Mechanics" takes us from the foundations of quantum mechanics, through quantum models of atomic, molecular, and electronic structure, and on to discussions of spectroscopy, and the electronic and magnetic properties of molecules. Lucid explanations and illuminating artworks help to visualise the many abstract concepts upon which the subject is built. Fully updated to reflect the latest advances in computational techniques, and enhanced with more mathematical support and worked examples than ever before, "Molecular Quantum Mechanics" remains the ultimate resource for those wishing to master this important subject. Supplementary resources: Companion web site, featuring: illustrations available to download; and solutions manual available to download [instructors only].
