## Symmetry and Group theory in Chemistry - 1st Edition

Group theoretical principles are an integral part of modern chemistry. Not only do they help account for a wide variety of chemical phenomena, they simplify quantum chemical calculations. Indeed, knowledge of their application to chemical problems is essential for students of chemistry. This complete, self-contained study, written for advanced undergraduate-level and graduate-level chemistry students, clearly and concisely introduces the subject of group theory and demonstrates its application to chemical problems. To assist chemistry students with the mathematics involved, Professor Bishop has included the relevant mathematics in some detail in appendices to each chapter. The book can then be read either as an introduction, dealing with general concepts ignoring the appendices , or a fairly comprehensive description of the subject including the appendices.## Symmetry elements and operations-Group theory in chemistry-axis of Symmetry chemistry-Examples

Symmetry can help resolve many chemistry problems and usually the first step is to determine the symmetry. If we know how to determine the symmetry of small molecules, we can determine symmetry of other targets which we are interested in. Therefore, this module will introduce basic concepts of group theory and after reading this module, you will know how to determine the symmetries of small molecules. Symmetry is very important in chemistry researches and group theory is the tool that is used to determine symmetry. Usually, it is not only the symmetry of molecule but also the symmetries of some local atoms, molecular orbitals, rotations and vibrations of bonds, etc. For example, if the symmetries of molecular orbital wave functions are known, we can find out information about the binding.
