Introduction to Theoretical Organic Chemistry and Molecular Modeling William B. Smith Introduction to Theoretical Organic Chemistry and Molecular Modeling was written by an organic chemist with the needs of practicing organic chemists and students of organic chemistry in mind. Many organic chemists possess a minimal mathematical background or knowledge of theoretical chemistry. At the same time, if they are to stay current, they need to acquire a solid understanding of quantum chemistry as it applies to problems in organic chemistry. The author uses Hückel molecular orbital theory as a pedagogical means to explain modern theoretical methods and introduce more advanced techniques. The mathematics needed is developed with only a minimal background from earlier course work, and the book includes numerous worked examples and exercises. Both students and practicing organic chemists will profit from the discussion of currently available computational software. The scope and limitations of each program are outlined, and specific examples of input and output for several of the most popular software packages are provided.
