## Chemical applications of group theoryRetains the easy-to-read format and informal flavor of the previous editions, and includes new material on the symmetric properties of extended arrays (crystals), projection operators, LCAO molecular orbitals, and electron counting rules. Also contains many new exercises and illustrations. |

#### LibraryThing Review

User Review - plaws595 - LibraryThingIf you are taking a graduate level group theory class, this is probably the book you are going to use. This is the standard when it comes to group theory in chemistry. My only concern is there are no published solution manual for the questions given in the book at the end of the chapters.
