Quantum Chemistry – Ira N. Levine – 6ta Edición


This book is intended for first-year graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in quantum chemistry. This text provides students with an in-depth treatment of quantum chemistry, and enables them to understand the basic principles. The limited mathematics background of many chemistry students is taken into account, and reviews of necessary mathematics (such as complex numbers, differential equations, operators, and vectors) are included.

Derivations are presented in full, step-by-step detail so that students at all levels can easily follow and understand. A rich variety of homework problems (both quantitative and conceptual) is given for each chapter.
