Editorial Reviews

"This primer for chemistry undergraduates provides an introductory course in symmetry and the chemical applications of group theory, an essential skill for tackling many bonding and spectroscopy problems. Focus is on molecular vibrations and chemical bonding. Coverage includes symmetry elements, matrices, representations, higher order point groups, molecular vibrations, vibrational spectroscopy, and symmetry aspects of chemical bonding."--SciTech Book News
