This Primer presents an introduction to molecular symmetry and point groups with an emphasis on their applications. The author has adopted a non-mathematical approach as far as possible and the text will supplement those that are too advanced or gloss over important information. Chapter topics include symmetry elements, operations and point groups; matrices, multiplications tables and representations; the reduction formula; molecular vibrations; vibrational spectroscopy and degenerate vibrations; symmetry aspects of chemical bonding and matrices in higher order point groups
