Computational Quantum Chemistry removes much of the mystery of modern computer programs for molecular orbital calculations by showing how to develop Excel spreadsheets to perform model calculations and investigate the properties of basis sets. Using the book together with the CD-ROM provides a unique interactive learning tool. In addition, because of the integration of theory with working examples on the CD-ROM, the reader can apply advanced features available in the spreadsheet to other applications in chemistry, physics, and a variety of disciplines that require the solution of differential equations. This book and CD-ROM makes a valuable companion for instructors, course designers, and students. It is suitable for direct applications in practical courses in theoretical chemistry and atomic physics, as well as for teaching advanced features of Excel in IT courses.

Computational Quantum Chemistry presents computational electronic structure theory as practised in terms of ab initio waveform methods and density functional approaches. Getting a full grasp of the field can often prove difficult, since essential topics fall outside of the scope of conventional chemistry education. This professional reference book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field. Postgraduate students and experienced researchers alike will appreciate Joseph McDouall's engaging writing style. The book is divided into five chapters, each providing a major aspect of the field. Electronic structure methods, the computation of molecular properties, methods for analysing the output from computations and the importance of relativistic effects on molecular properties are also discussed. Links to the websites of widely used software packages are provided so that the reader can gain first hand experience of using the techniques described in the book. Dr McDouall has more than 25 years experience in theoretical chemistry; as a reader at the University of Manchester his research interests include the application of quantum chemical methods to the elucidation of chemical problems and the development and implementation of electronic structure methods that permit the accurate prediction of chemical structures and molecular properties.

Modern Computational Quantum Chemistry is indispensable for research in the chemical sciences. Computational Quantum Chemistry II - The Group Theory Calculator describes the group theory that the authors have developed in the past twenty-five years and illustrates how this approach, known as the 'Spherical Shell' method, can be applied to solve a variety of problems that benefit from a group theory analysis. To complement the theory, the book is supplied with a CD-ROM (Windows TM application), on which interactive files, based on EXCEL spreadsheet technology controlled by Visual Basic code, can be used to perform straightforwardly group-theory analyses for direct application to the simplification of physical problems in Chemistry, Physics and even Engineering Science. The Group Theory Calculator Web page is located at http://www.chemistry.nuim.ie/gt_calculator.htm. The primary purpose of this Web page is to identify and resolve any problems encountered while using the MS EXCEL files on the CD-ROM (included with the book). The Web page is maintained by Charles M. Quinn and allows readers to gain updates and news relating to this publication. * A comprehensive description of the authors' revolutionary group theory and structural chemistry methodology * A unique reference/ teaching work together with a CD-ROM filled with powerful interactive files that can be applied to solve group theory problems * Valuable companion for instructors, designers and students * Contains powerful calculators that are simple to use and do not require detailed knowledge for their application

Advances in Quantum Chemistry publishes surveys of current developments in the rapidly developing field of quantum chemistry--a field that falls between the historically established areas of mathematics, physics,chemistry, and biology. With invited reviews written by leading international researchers, each presenting new results, this quality serial provides a single vehicle for following progress in this interdisciplinary area. "Volume 28 collects papers written in honor of Geerd H.F. Diercksen. Diercksen is a pioneer in the field of quantum mechanics whose research includes studies of the structure and stability of hydrogen-bonded and Van der Waals dimers and small clusters, thevibrational and rotational spectra of diatomic and triatomic molecules, on static electric properties in solutions and of molecules absorbed on surfaces. His results are essential in molecular and atomic physics, in astrophysics, and in biochemistry.

The use of quantum chemistry for the quantitative prediction of molecular properties has long been frustrated by the technical difficulty of carrying out the needed computations. In the last decade there have been substantial advances in the formalism and computer hardware needed to carry out accurate calculations of molecular properties efficiently. These advances have been sufficient to make quantum chemical calculations a reliable tool for the quantitative interpretation of chemical phenomena and a guide to laboratory experiments. However, the success of these recent developments in computational quantum chemistry is not well known outside the community of practitioners. In order to make the larger community of chemical physicists aware of the current state of the subject, this self-contained volume of Advances in Chemical Physics surveys a number of the recent accomplishments in computational quantum chemistry. This stand-alone work presents the cutting edge of research in computational quantum mechanics. Supplemented with more than 150 illustrations, it provides evaluations of a broad range of methods, including: * Quantum Monte Carlo methods in chemistry * Monte Carlo methods for real-time path integration * The Redfield equation in condensed-phase quantum dynamics * Path-integral centroid methods in quantum statistical mechanics and dynamics * Multiconfigurational perturbation theory-applications in electronic spectroscopy * Electronic structure calculations for molecules containing transition metals * And more Contributors to New Methods in Computational Quantum Mechanics KERSTIN ANDERSSON, Department of Theoretical Chemistry, Chemical Center, Sweden DAVID M.

This book provides a comprehensive account, from first principles, of the methods of numerical quantum mechanics, beginning with formulations and fundamental postulates. The development continues with that of the Hamiltonian and angular momentum operators, and with methods of approximating the solutions of the Schroedinger equation with variational and perturbation methods. Chapter 3 is a description of the Hartree-Fock self-consistent field method, which is developed systematically for atoms. The Born-Oppenheimer approximation is introduced, and the numerical methods presented one by one thereafter in a logically consistent way that should be accessible to undergraduates. These include LCAO, Hartree-Fock-SCF method for molecules, Roothaan LCAO-MO-SCF method, and electron correlation energy. Chapter 4 is devoted to the more sophisticated computational methods in quantum chemistry, with an introduction to topics that include: the zero differential overlap approximation; Huckel MO theory of conjugated molecules; Pariser-Parr-Pople MO method; extended Huckel theory; neglect of differential overlap methods; invariance in space requirements; CNDO; INDO; NDDO; MINDO; MNDO; AM1; MNDO-PM3; SAM1; SINDO1; CNDO/S; PCILO,Xα; and ab initio methods. This is followed by an introduction to Moller-Plesset perturbation theory of many electrons, and coupled perturbed Hartree Fock theory, with a description of the coupled cluster method. Finally Chapter 5 applies these methods to problems of contemporary interest. The book is designed to be a junior/senior level text in computational quantum mechanics, suitable for undergraduates and graduates in chemistry, physics, computer science, and associated disciplines.
