Quantum Chemistry – Ira N. Levine – 7th Edition


Known for its solid presentation of , this bestseller is a rigorous but accessible introduction to both chemistry and the math needed to master it. Chemistry, Seventh Edition covers , atomic structure, and electronic structure, and provides a thorough, unintimidating treatment of operators, differential equations, simultaneous equations, and other areas of required math.Practical for readers in all branches of chemistry, the new edition reflects the latest research and methods of chemistry, and clearly demonstrates the usefulness and limitations of current quantum-mechanical methods for the of molecular properties.
