About the Book :
Still a best-selling text after a remarkable twenty-four years in print, Don McQuarrie has now updated his landmark Quantum Chemistry into a keenly anticipated second edition. Although much of the material is timeless, the book has been selectively updated throughout, with perhaps the most significant revision being the incorporation of computer power. In a departure from its 1983 predecessor, the new edition covers quantum chemistry programs such as Gaussian and WebMo, and encourages the use of programs such as MathCad and Mathematica to perform calculations with hitherto unheard of ease. The new edition has also included a series of short math "refresher" inserts (first used with brilliant results in McQuarrie"s quantum-first P. Chem. text) spaced intermittently throughout the book to help students focus on the physical principles being explained rather than struggling with the underlying mathematics. As with the first edition, the book assumes a prerequisite of one year of calculus with no required knowledge of differential equations. Each chapter includes a broad range of problems and exercises. Answers to numerical problems are at the back of the book.
