Reviews of previous editions

“This has to be the most delightful book on symmetry ever written!” F.L. Pilar, Elementary Quantum Chemistry

“The book gives a fascinating overview of the rich variety of applications of symmetry, showing both its power and its aesthetic appeal.” Science

“Education by aesthetic appeal.” Nature

“The cosmopolitan eye… good-humored and clearly delighted by diversity, informs this entire book. The work offers a broad new perspective.” Scientific American

“In the refreshing style of scientists with an almost renaissance versatility.” New Scientist

“This beautiful book… looks at symmetry as a unifying theme in the nature of things.” Mathematical Reviews

“…gives the reader a broad perspective…” The Mathematical Intelligencer

“An outstanding book that succeeds admirably on a number of levels…” Bowker’s Good Reading

“I warmly recommend it to all chemists.” Journal of Chemical Education

“Succeeds not only in demonstrating how central [in] the study of all fields of chemistry symmetry consideration [is] but how these same concepts of symmetry can be traced through all our cultural traditions unifying and contrasting diverse endeavors in literature, music, and art.” Journal of the American Chemical Society

“The book…to which I shall return frequently and with considerable pleasure.” Chemistry and Industry

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Revised edition of a survey of chemistry from the point of view of symmetry, presenting many examples from chemistry and other fields in order to emphasize the unifying nature of the concept of symmetry. After the introduction, the simplest symmetries are presented using chemical and nonchemical examples. Molecular geometry is then discussed in qualitative terms. Group-theoretical methods are applied in an introductory manner to the symmetries of molecular vibrations, electronic structure, and chemical reactions. These chapters are followed by a descriptive discussion of space-group symmetries, concluding with the symmetry of crystals. Paper edition (unseen), $39.50. Annotation c.
