For one-term, advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level courses in Quantum Chemistry.
This textbook is designed to provide an integrated approach to the conceptual development of quantum chemistry and its application to current research questions involving molecular structure, energies, and spectra. Focusing on the language of quantum chemistry, the use of its most important tools, and overcoming mathematical impediments, the authors cover the field of chemical structure and properties in a modest and straightforward manner.
