Computational Chemistry Workbook. Learning Through Examples. 2. Auflage

  • ID: 4470386
  • Book
  • February 2019
  • 250 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd
The only text with a practical approach to theoretical chemistry and the fundamentals of computational chemistry, this book is universal in that it is not limited to a particular computer code or program.
The experienced authors have successfully used these labs for several courses and adopt here an excellent didactic approach, clearly explaining the underlying theory before providing practical examples for students to test on their own computers.
This edition is revised and updated with approximately 15% new content, and now includes several new problems as well as an augmented list of references to guide readers in finding material for further reading. An accompanying website contains the Linux software and all necessary programs for downloading.
Aimed at advanced undergraduate, graduate, advanced bachelor and masters students taking a physical chemistry, a computational chemistry or a theoretical chemistry course, as well as at university teachers designing teaching labs for these courses.
