About the Book:
Quantum mechanics provides the basis for solution of molecular structure and group theory is the mathematics, which serves as a link between the molecular symmetry and quantum mechanics. Therefore, the knowledge of group theory is essential to understand the structural aspects of molecules.
The basic purpose of the present book is to describe the fundamental concepts related to symmetry and group theory and to discuss their applications, in lucid manner with optimum mathematical part, which is required to understand the chemical problems. The book is divided into ten chapters emphasizing on the concepts and applications of group theory. It is tried to include enormous and sufficient number of examples to explain the concepts. Hope that this book will definitely serve the purpose and prove to be useful for the students who are pursuing their studies in this subject at graduation or post-graduation level.
