Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics Author:James E. House The Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics provides a clear exposition of the principles of quantum mechanics and its applications for chemistry students. In easy-to-understand terminology, the reader is taken from the early developments in physics that led to quantum mechanics through topics that are essential to understanding modern chemistr... more »y and physics. Only a basic knowledge of calculus and introductory chemistry is required. The book is designed for self-study and provides fully developed mathematical details. It stresses the applications of the harmonic oscillator, rigid rotor, barrier penetration, and hydrogen atom models. Topics dealing with chemical bonding, symmetry, and molecular orbitals provide the background necessary for the study of quantum mechanics at a more advanced level.
