Theoretical Chemistry: Advances and Perspectives, Volume 3 compiles studies that review all aspects of theoretical chemistry.

This book begins by discussing the developments which have made the ab initio investigation of molecular ions feasible, followed by a treatment on classical equilibrium thermodynamics. The significant structure theory of liquids, structure of fluid 4He by means of zero and nonzero temperatures, and radial distribution function are also considered. This volume concludes with a description on various types of proton transfer reactions in water, explaining how the great speed of such reactions are intimately associated with the unusual hydrogen-bond structure that characterizes liquid water.

This publication is valuable to theoretical chemists and students concerned with the mathematical description of chemistry.
