The carbon nanotubes field has evolved substantially since the publication of the bestseller Carbon Nanotubes: Synthesis, Structure, Properties and Applications . The present volume builds on the generic aspects of the aforementioned book, which emphasizes the fundamentals, with the new volume emphasizing areas that have grown rapidly since the first volume, guiding future directions where research is needed and highlighting applications. The volume also includes an emphasis on areas like graphene, other carbon-like and other tube-like materials because these fields are likely to affect and influence developments in nanotubes in the next 5 years.
|Principles of Quantum Mechanics: As Applied to Chemistry and Chemical Physics
Lowest new price: $20.00
Lowest used price: $19.08
List price: $83.00
Author: Donald D. Fitts
Quantum behavior encompasses a large fraction of modern science and technology, including the laws of chemistry and the properties of crystals, semiconductors, and superfluids. This graduate-level text presents the basic principles of quantum mechanics using modern mathematical techniques and theoretical concepts, such as hermitian operators, Hilbert space, Dirac notation, and ladder operators. The first two chapters serve as an introduction to quantum theory with a discussion of wave motion and Schrödinger's wave mechanics. Coverage then details the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics. Throughout, basic theory is clearly illustrated and applied to the harmonic oscillator, angular momentum, the hydrogen atom, the variation method, perturbation theory, and nuclear motion. This volume is the ideal textbook for beginning graduate students in chemistry, chemical physics, molecular physics and materials science.
|Ideas of Quantum Chemistry
Lowest new price: $205.48
Lowest used price: $205.44
List price: $225.00
Author: Lucjan Piela
Ideas of Quantum Chemistry shows how quantum mechanics is applied to chemistry to give it a theoretical foundation. The structure of the book (a TREE-form) emphasizes the logical relationships between various topics, facts and methods. It shows the reader which parts of the text are needed for understanding specific aspects of the subject matter. Interspersed throughout the text are short biographies of key scientists and their contributions to the development of the field.
Ideas of Quantum Chemistry has both textbook and scientific reference work aspects. Like a textbook, the material is organized into digestable sections with each chapter following the same structure. It answers frequently asked questions. The most important conclusions and the essential mathematical formulae are highlighted in the text.
In its reference aspects, it has a broader range than traditional quantum chemistry books and reviews virtually all of the pertinent literature. The book is as such useful both for beginners as well as for specialists in advanced topics of quantum chemistry.
The book is supplemented by an appendix on the Internet: http://www.chem.uw.edu.pl/ideas/.
* Presents the widest range of quantum chemical problems covered in one book
* Unique structure allows material to be tailored to the specific needs of the reader
* Informal language facilitates the understanding of difficult topics
