Editorial Reviews

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.
