Overview

Algebraic Theory of Molecules presents a fresh look at the mathematics of wave functions that provide the theoretical underpinnings of molecular spectroscopy. Written by renowned authorities in the field, the book demonstrates the advantages of algebraic theory over the more conventional geometric approach to developing the formal quantum mechanics inherent in molecular spectroscopy. Many examples are provided that compare the algebraic and geometric methods, illustrating the relationship between the algebraic approach and current experiments. The authors develop their presentation from a basic level so as to enable newcomers to enter the field while providing enough details and concrete examples to serve as a reference for the expert. Chemical physicists, physical chemists, and spectroscopists will want to read this exciting new approach to molecular spectroscopy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Here, in a thorough and straightforward style, is the full current story of the algebraic method of describing and analyzing molecular rotation-vibration spectra." — Physics Today

"Iachello and Levine point the way to new technologies with great potential . . . . It is no little feat to have put the material in this book together as a readable account of recent research efforts, and the authors are to be congratulated."—International Journal of Quantum Chemistry"
