Books Description: From the Publisher A thorough introduction to molecular symmetry and group theory as applied to chemical problems. Readers will discover by example the power of symmetry arguments in understanding otherwise intimidating theoretical problems in chemistry. A set of appendices includes templates for paper models which will help students understand symmetry groups. Molecular Symmetry is a must-have introduction to this fundamental topic for students of chemistry, and will also find a place on the bookshelves of postgraduates and researchers looking for a broad and modern introduction to the subjectAuthor: David Willock.

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.3/5(5).

Molecular vibrations (non-degenerate modes) : $ Introduction to molecular symmetry. [J S Ogden] -- "Symmetry is fundamental in science, architecture, and art. In this primer, Steve Ogden provides an introductory course in symmetry and the chemical applications of group theory, an essential skill.

Molecular symmetry imposes constraints on molecular properties 1. A symmetry operation is an action that leaves an object looking the same after it has been carried out.

A symmetry element is a point, straight line, or plane (flat surface) with respect to which a symmetry operation is carried out. Molecular Symmetry is designed to introduce the subject by combining symmetry with spectroscopy in a clear and accessible manner.

Each chapter ends with a summary of learning points, a selection of self-test questions, and suggestions for further reading.

This book is an introduction to molecular electronic structural theory. It is aimed at students who have reasonable familiarity with differential and integral calculus and are beginning a study of the physical description of chemical systems.

Reflection in the molecular yz plane of the water molecule leaves the atoms in identical positions. Therefore the reflection operation, denoted ^s(yz), is a symmetry operation. A carat symbol ^ above operations distinguishes them from elements.

The geometric yz plane represents the symmetry element associated with the operation ^s(yz). 1: Introduction to Symmetry. You will already be familiar with the concept of symmetry in an everyday sense.

If we say something is ‘symmetrical’, we usually mean it has mirror symmetry, or ‘left-right’ symmetry, and would look the same if viewed in a mirror. Symmetry. This Primer presents an introduction to molecular symmetry and point groups with an emphasis on their applications.
