Quantum Chemistry – Ira N. Levine – 7th Edition


The main objective of this text is to provide a solid understanding of the physical and mathematical aspects of quantum chemistry and molecular electronic structure. The deductions are made in enough detail that they are very easy to follow. The book is written in such a way that it is useful for students of any chemistry major and not only for specialists in quantum chemistry. Known for its robust presentation of mathematics, this bestseller is a rigorous yet accessible introduction to quantum chemistry and the calculations required to master it.

Quantum Chemistry, Seventh Edition covers quantum mechanics, atomic structure, and molecular electronic structure, and offers a comprehensive treatment of operators, differential equations, simultaneous linear equations, and other required areas of mathematics.

Practical for readers of all branches of chemistry, the new edition reflects the latest research and methods in computational chemistry, quantum chemistry, and clearly demonstrates the usefulness and limitations of current quantum mechanical methods for the calculation of the molecular properties.
