Introduction to Quantum Theory and Atomic Structure by P. A. Cox

Book Description

Chemistry students need a basic understanding of quantum theory and its applications to atomic and molecularstructure and spectroscopy. This book develops the basic concepts needed as background, and discusses atomic structure but not molecular applications. The first two chapters are concerned with the basic ideas and problems of wave-particle duality, the nature of wavefunction, and its statistical interpretation. Chapter 3 discusses some important applications of Schrodinger's equation to chemically relevant situations. Chapters 4 and 5 deal respectively with the hydrogen atom, and with the structure of many electron atoms and the periodic table of elements. The emphasis throughout is on the physical concepts and their concrete application. The required background in mathematics is elementary calculus and the properties of trigonometric and exponential functions, but not complex numbers. Necessary concepts of classical physics are developed as required.

Books By Author P. A. Cox

Transition Metal Oxides by P. A. Cox Transition Metal Oxides, Paperback (August 2010)

Transition metal oxides form a series of compounds with a uniquely wide range of electronic properties. The main aim of this book is to describe the varied electronic behaviour shown by transition metal oxides, and to discuss the different types of theoretical models that have been proposed to interpret this behaviour.

Surface Science of Metal Oxides by P. A. Cox Surface Science of Metal Oxides, Paperback (March 1996)

The first book to give a comprehensive account of the fundamental properties of metal-oxide surfaces.

Electronic Structure and Chemistry of Solids by P. A. Cox Electronic Structure and Chemistry of Solids, Paperback (June 1987)

Shows how the electronic structures and properties of solids can be described in terms familiar to chemists. This book contains topics such as metal-insulator transitions, low-dimensional solids and 'molecular metals', and the properties of surfaces. It is for undergraduate students with a reasonable grounding in inorganic and physical chemistry.
