Overview

Known for its solid presentation of mathematics, this bestseller is a rigorous but accessible introduction to both quantum chemistry and the math needed to master it. Quantum Chemistry, Seventh Edition covers quantum mechanics, atomic structure, and molecular electronic structure, and provides a thorough, unintimidating treatment of operators, differential equations, simultaneous linear equations, and other areas of required math. Practical for readers in all branches of chemistry, the new edition reflects the latest quantum chemistry research and methods of computational chemistry, and clearly demonstrates the usefulness and limitations of current quantum-mechanical methods for the calculation of molecular properties.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Intended for first-year graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in quantum chemistry, this volume includes new material including the Numerov method for numerical solution of the one-dimensional Schr<:o>dinger equation; linear-scaling methods; molecular electrostatic potentials; conformational searching; vibrational frequencies; thermodynamic properties; ab initio quantum chemistry programs; composite methods; solvent effects; the ONIOM, IMOMO, and IMOMM methods. Coverage has also been expanded on density-functional theory, the molecular-mechanics method, semiempirical methods, geometry optimization, and comparison of methods. Integrated throughout are detailed treatments of the required mathematics, including operators, differential equations, simultaneous linear equations, and other needed topics. Annotation c.
