About the Authors
  • Jack Simons returns to basics and focuses on the foundations of modern theoretical chemistry. He emphasizes the concepts, tools and equations governing the three main theoretical chemistry sub-disciplines in this introductory-level text. An associated website (http://simons.hec.utah.edu/Theorypage/index.html) supplies supplementary material plus many links to other theoretical chemistry sites. The book contains over fifty multi-part exercises and worked solutions and provides a concise account of modern theoretical chemistry.

    • Contains over 50 multi-part exercises with complete worked solutions
    • Highly illustrated and written in an informal style
    • Supplementary material and links to other relevant sites can be found at http://simons.hec.utah.edu/TheoryPage/index.html
