Description

The field of theoretical and computational chemistry is rapidly evolving as new algorithms and techniques are developed. Mathematical Physics in Theoretical Chemistry deals with the important topics in theoretical and computational chemistry, presenting them in a unified and efficient mannaer. Topics covered include density functional theory, computational methods in biological chemistry, and Hartree-Fock methods.

Mathematical Physics in Theoretical Chemistry is the second volume in the Developments in Physical & Theoretical Chemistry series. Each volume in the series contains highlights of the major advances and developments in research and serves as a basis for advanced study. With a multi-disciplinary and encompassing structure guided by a highly experienced editor, the series is designed to enable researchers in both academia and industry to efficiently keep abreast of developments in physical and theoretical chemistry.

Key Features

  • Brings together in one volume the most important aspects of recent advances in theoretical and computational chemistry
