Summary

Integrating many new computer-oriented examples and problems throughout, this modern introduction to quantum chemistry covers quantum mechanics, atomic structure, and molecular electronics, and clearly demonstrates the usefulness and limitations of current quantum-mechanical methods for the calculation of molecular properties.Covers such areas as the Schrouml;dinger Equation, harmonic oscillator, angular momentum, hydrogen atom, theorems of quantum mechanics, electron spin and the Pauli Principle, the Virial Theorem and the Hellmann-Feynman Theorem, and more. Contains solid presentations of the mathematics needed for quantum chemistry, clearly explaining difficult or subtle points in detail. Offers full, step-by-step examinations of derivations that are easy to follow and understand. Offers comprehensive coverage of recent, revolutionary advances in modern quantum-chemistry methods for calculating molecular electronic structure, including the ab initio and semiempirical methods for molecular calculations. Now integrates over 500 problems throughout, with a substantial increase in the amount of computer applications, and fully updated discussions of molecular electronic structure calculations.For professionals in all branches of chemistry.
