9780124865501: Methods of Molecular Quantum Mechanics (Theoretical chemistry; a series of monographs)

Since this book was first published 20 years ago, there have been
remarkable advances in molecular quantum mechanics. The traditional methods expounded in the first edition have been absorbed into thegrowing field of "computational chemistry": but the whole fabric of the subject has also changed under the impact of techniques originating in theoretical physics. Consequently, besides rewriting much of the original text, it has been necessary to add an almost equal amount of completely new material: this covers second quantization and diagrammatic perturbation theory,symmetric and unitary group methods, new forms of valence bond theory, dynamic properties and response, propagator and equation-of-motiontechniques and the theory of intermolecular forces. Problems (withhints on solutions) appear at the end of each chapter and form a valuable supplement to the text. Like the first edition, this is a "teaching book" which follows a deductive step-by-step path from basic principles up to the current frontiers of research. Although aimed primarily at graduate students and their teachers, it should be standard reference for all who come in contact with modern theories of the electronic structure and properties of molecules. The last twenty years have seen remarkable advances in molecular quantum mechanics. The traditional methods expounded in the first successful edition of this book have been implemented on a grand scale. In the Second Edition, Mcweeny has completly revised the text and has added a wealth of new material and example problems.

Review:

It remains a beautifully clear exposition of quantum chemistry written for the graduate student but useful for more experienced researchers, with newly added and sometimes tough problems at the end of each chapter....
All in all, this is an excellent new version of an important textbook.
--NATURE
A lot of extremely important material appears in one very valuable volume.
This is a mathematical text of the highest calibre. It is a tribute to the author that the book contains so much material in a rapidly expanding field.... Scientists in molecular quantum mechanics will wish to have this text.
--JOURNAL CHEM SOCIETY
The last twenty years have seen remarkable advances in molecular quantum mechanics. The traditional methods expounded in the first successful edition of this book have been implemented on a grand scale. In the second edition, McWeeny has completely revised the text and has added much new material and example problems.
