Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Examines principles of quantum theory and quantum mechanics and their applications to simple atomic and molecular problems as well as theories of the chemical bond. Using an easy-to-understand writing style and a minimum of mathematics, it dissects the basic laws and techniques of quantum mechanics. Part One provides an overview of the subject--from Planck's quantum theory through theories of wave motion to quantum mechanics. Part Two demonstrates simple applications of these laws and principles and provides solutions to Schrödinger equations, illustrations of types of wave functions, and concepts of orbitals, quantum numbers and energy levels as they arise in atomic and molecular problems. Finally, systems for which Schrödinger equations cannot be solved are dealt with in Part Three. Exercises and problems allow students to immediately apply principles discussed and reinforce learning.
