Description

A two-semester text for advanced undergraduate chemistry

The Introduction to Molecular Dynamics and Chemical Kinetics + Advanced Molecular Dynamics and Chemical Kinetics: 2 Volume Set provides complete guidance throughout a two-semester course. Beginning with molecular reaction dynamics and chemical kinetics, each book breaks complex theory into easily-comprehended concepts. Solved exercises provide clear examples for calculations, bonding, predictions, and other physical phenomenon, while challenging problem sets allow students to gauge their levels of understanding and revisit difficult topics along the way.
