Description

A comprehensive, practical examination of the basic principles andinner mechanics of matter . . .

Moving from pure principles to real applications, the QuantumChemistry Workbook is a step-by-step study guide to the innerworkings of nature's fundamental systems: free atoms, smallmolecules, polymers, and crystals. Beginning with a short, clearsummary of the basics of quantum mechanics, the Workbook offers achapter-by-chapter exposition in a highly interactive exercise andquestion format that allows readers to work through the mainconcepts discussed. Not simply a conventional workbook, the QuantumChemistry Workbook encourages discovery and original reflection,allowing users, through its rigorous give and take, to discover theintriguing connections hidden within the science. The Workbookincludes:
* A comparative overview of how basic concepts and principlesactually work in free atoms, small molecules, polymers, andcrystals
* A practical look at the approximation level of a one-electrontype
* A complete examination of momentum space, with numerousconceptual illustrations
* Atomic units used throughout

An essential companion to any textbook on chemistry and physics,the Quantum Chemistry Workbook is ideal for professors interestedin giving students a firm grasp of the working basics of thescience. For students and professionals interested in pursuing thefundamentals of quantum chemistry on their own, the Workbook is anincomparable introduction and study tool.
